We generally viewed bookshelves using bricks as uprights as simple college student decor UNTIL we saw these fab shelves designed by Gionatan De Pas, Donato D’Urbino and Lomazzi for Longato in 1971. Of course the designers used just the right bricks for their striped shelving and a great deal of thought and vision, i.e. the width of the shelves are exactly the width of the bricks…some bricks are placed horizontally, others front to back.
These shelves are swell, an idea that could be riffed on endlessly. For inspiration in the realm of bricks, our post on Brick Lust gives a view of the many possibilities.
