Built-in book cases can take any space from drab to fab. Unfortunately, these custom-built units are often expensive—and if you don’t own your home, not worth the investment. Now thanks to the Japanese design firm Nendo, and their new shelving unit called Nest, you can have a set of book cases adjusted exactly for your living space. This ingenious shelf stretches to accommodate any size. Each unit is made from carbon fiber materials, so it will hold up under extremely large amounts of weight. Plus, unlike built-ins, when it’s time to move, you can take these customizable pieces with you to adorn your new home.

By default, the unit is folded into a three-shelf configuration. However with a gentle pull to each side, the it can expand to double or triple the amount of shelving. The vertical partitions are made from carbon fiber, and the horizontal pieces are constructed with synthetic fibers sandwiched between carbon fiber layers. All of the surfaces are finished in a wooden larch veneer.

Nendo debuted the unit at the 2015 London Design Festival, but they’ve already garnered lots of attention for their other designs. Over the past few years this prolific firm has received many awards including Designer of the Year at Maison & Objet 2015. You can check out all of their beautiful products on their website.
