The Selfshelf is a shelf with the appearance of a book. Invisibly attached to the wall with the included bracket, it can support a maximum weight of 4 kg. The effect is amazing, your stack of books seems to be mysteriously floating in the air. On the front of the cover features the text "Ceci n'est pas un livre".

My new favorite library, from none other than the Master of the Universe himself, Karl Lagerfeld.


I think it's in his house because the skylight looks familiar, but it might be at the 7L bookshop?

Shakespeare and Company bookstore in Paris

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JUpSR9fhQDM

Set in the heart of Paris on the Left Bank opposite Notre-Dame, Shakespeare and Company bookstore was created by George Whitman and became an institution.

Edit: Unfortunally you can't watch the video here... go to http://www.youtube.com/user/pixaway.

Is it in his house? It looks amazing either way.

the selfshelf is such a brilliant idea do you get to choose the covers you want as your shelf book? :p

Nope, it's always the same one, but it's available in different colours.
