By now, everyone has jumped on the bandwagon of organizing bookshelves by spine color. And while we love the look, it’s refreshing to see a new, inventive way to display one’s reading material. Booken was designed by Yael Mer & Shay Alkalay of Raw Edges as a way to exhibit the book “as an object that becomes material.” It’s the horizontal version of the traditional bookcase, and with the books hanging by their spines, they create a visually interesting and purposeful console table that doubles as a library.

Booken is made of a light wooden frame that has wooden slats from which to hang the books (a take on the “classic firm of the bookmark” according to the designers).
