Sapien Bookcase by Bruno Rainaldi

I remember the days when I was a college girl and I had to share my bedroom with three other girls my age. And I also remember our biggest problem was the lack of space as we never had enough space to store all the things we needed. So we came up with some very original and crazy ideas about how to save some space in a small room.

Well, I think this Sapien Bookcase designed by the Italian Bruno Rainaldi solves the problem of book storing at least. This is a “tall” bookcase and it offers you the possibility to store books vertically and not horizontally like all the normal ones, so you can store up to 70 books and all this using just a corner of your room.

The bookcase or bookshelf as you might call it has a very strong and heavy metal base that confers stability to the whole construction and ten to fourteen shelves where you can deposit your books. It is very a simple yet bright idea and it makes you wonder how come you haven’t thought of it. It is available now for $198 (the shorter version) or $298 (the taller version).
