I love books and creative design. Unfortunately for some, space is very tight and finding room for their books can be a challenge. Rather than pitching out the books, Levitate (London), cleverly folded their architectural skills and creativity together to make a Book Staircase. The sides are almost flush with the forward shelf edges. The steps alternate. Overall, a very nice job. I wonder if there are any lights (cable lights, maybe?) underneath the shelving.

The apartment, which apparently belongs to Victoria and Sebastian and has been featured numerous other places, including ApartmentTherapy (where other photos of the apartment are available) and Boing Boing.
