The Book Keeper is a single shelf fashioned from two square prisms

The collection's steel-framed Book Keeper is a single shelf fashioned from two square prisms. The first frame sits flat on the surface, while the second rests on top at a 45-degree slant, so the books that sit on it are angled with their spines pointing upwards.

It provides a decorative display for a small selection of books. Studio founder Kristina Dam told Dezeen she had aimed to create "a sculptural place for your most treasured books or even cookbooks to place in your kitchen".

Also made from steel, the Grid Coat Stand features a single frame in the shape of a rectangular prism. It is intersected by a low steel shelf for shoes, and has a single rail that sits flush with the top of the frame for hanging clothes.
