Brain Bending 3-D Bookshelf

rocky bookshelf
This bookshelf is designed to skewer your perception of 3 dimensional space and volume. Created by Charles Kalpakian, the Rocky Bookshelf is a metallic brain bender of a storage unit. Depending upon your angle of viewing, the shelves will look different. These steel shelves are based on a 3D variation of a classic cabinet maker pattern. It’s hard to even tell where the openings are and what’s flat and what’s angled (based on the photos).

Side view above. The bookshelf comes in a few color choices made of lacquered steel and measures 55″ wide by 37″ high by 14″ deep. It’s almost like an optical illusion furniture piece.

Here’s a closeup. Get your head ready for yet another mind bender: the bookshelves run almost $5000. However, for that lofty price you get a really unique looking piece of furniture and a guaranteed conversation piece.
