Rolling Bookshelf

The Patatras is a new way to store books – a wheel of knowledge if you will. Made of expanded polypropylene in a range of colors, each one contains cells for which you put books in. It’s actually not that large. At only 122 cm in diameter, you won’t need to worry about it accidentally rolling over the family cat.

    Not really practical in the circular shape, but something with a flat bottom, square or triangular would be really nice. The slots are a nice idea.

    lots of space is being wasted!!!

    This is meant to be more of a niche decoration with ‘some’ functionality. Space loss and practicality are neither the desire, nor an issue.

    In my own home, I think these would drive me bonkers, as I like organization, but as a design I find them quite entertaining as well as having possible secondary function.

    Lay one on it’s side, instant drawing table for the kiddies and still could place books in the slots if so desired. (This assumes you have the floor space you’d want to leave it in, but again, it’s not meant to be practical, so probably wouldn’t be a concern.)

  • Which stands for graphic user interface and is probably the single most important element
    when choosing a 3D modeling program. Should you compare the expense
    of Maya or even 3DMax (Over $1000), 3DMagix is a no-brainer at the cost of less
    than $50. Several components like Maya Classic Cloth, Maya Live, Maya
    n – Particle, Camera Sequencer, Maya Fluid Effects, etc.

  • this bookshelf design really interesting me to build it
