Literary Literalism: Bold Bookcase Shaped Like Book Pages

Some books form subtle plots through metaphor and allegory … but if this storage system were a story, it would be blunt and obvious, for better or worse.

The Pagina bookcase from Cassina comes in blue but also more-obvious white, looking very much like pages from a book, particularly when you put the pair of symmetrical sides next to one another.

Though it appears inflexible and domineering, its individual shelves can actually be moved, and the varying depths (shaped by the curving of the front surface) actually allow for a practical arrangement of items based on size. Either way, if your books alone were not enough to show your love of literature, this surely tells the world where your heart lies.
