Novels hang from threads in this reimagined design item.

A pair of designers in the UK have put together a bookcase that looks just like a weaving loom. The bookcase holds one novel by each of the writers chosen by Granta in its once-a-decade list, which was first published in 1983.

The bookshelf itself is made up of a rectangular wooden frame that resembles the old weaving implement. A series of red threads within the frame each have a set of black stoppers that can be moved up and down, allowing books to be stored at different heights and giving the shelf it’s name.

The pair behind the design – Yael Mer and Shay Alkalay – are originally from Tel-Aviv and make up Raw Edges.

Having been commissioned by the British Council the bookshelf is not only designed to be unique, but also allows the books to stay at the centre of attention. It was first displayed at Milan’s design week earlier this month.
