The Italian company MOCO has an interesting design idea with books. A table, called the Ex Libris. The company says that designing a table in a new way is a “difficult and fascinating challenge”.
This particular design does not seem too inspired, though. The design reminds me of a student in need of a table and decides to use its books for a base. The MOCO design looks very nice, even though it does not come across as very original. It still seems like a good design idea for bibliophiles, so that is why I posted it. I would have used a clear glass top, so the books look like pillars and you get the illusion of space. But who am I? What do you think? Click here to learn more.
