Opus Shelving by Sean Yoo’s

This quasi-hexagonal pattern bookcase is made with “expanded polypropylene”- same material used for the car bumper and motorcycle helmet. It is very light but very strong, can be used indoor or outdoor and 100% recyclable. It wasn’t designed specifically to be used as a book case. I’ve seen some people use it for storing wine bottles, children’s toys, CD’s, DVD’s, records, and even an occasional book or two. Available in black and white from Design Within Reach for $450. UnicaHome also carries grey and orange versions. – Via – Apartamenttherapy

    That’s a cool looking bookshelf! So they also make larger ones?

    Maybe they do custom pieces, but you’ll have to contact them for that.

    I think it is a modular piece, so if you want it bigger you just get more and stack them.
