Here is a piece of art that looks like something in between a practical bookshelf, a wall application, and a children room’s toy. But do not let the look of it full you – it is totally a bookshelf, made of cut panels placed vertically to the back panel, creating a sliced bookshelf that takes the shape of a favorite book character – a fish from the “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea” by Jules Verne or the giant green leaf pulled out from “The Jungle Book” by Rudyard Kipling. The three-dimensional storage made by the Italian designer Alessandra Meacci lets you put your books in the space between the cut panels and produce a sense of floating library.
