The Sapien Bookcase from Italian designer Bruno Rainaldi is a unique solution for those with a lot of books and little space to store them. By holding texts horizontally in a vertical stack, the tall Sapien can accommodate up to 70 small and large books in a very compact footprint. The removable shelves are a mere 2mm thick but each one can hold approximately five books, or an impressive 5.5 lbs. This tall Sapien has 14 shelves When fully loaded, the bookcase virtually disappears behind the books. Because of its quick and widespread popularity, there are many knock offs from various retailers. This is, however, an original. All-metal construction and a heavy, weighted base ensure the design’s strength and stability. 14″ × 14″ × 79.5″. Made in Italy.
Originally, $300 from Design Within Reach. Asking $175 cash or best offer. Possibility of delivery within Manhattan.
