Old and Cold's ingenious
book hanger


It's not often you come across an object with an everyday job completely re-thought and done differently. It's most refreshing and, in the case of the piece of furniture below, designed by Copenhagen-based Old and Cold, aka Agusta and Gustav, it is also very beautiful.

I'm not sure what you'd call this – it does the job of book shelves, bedside table or clothes hooks. And more, I'm sure. On their Etsy shop, Agusta and Gustav call this particular design a book rack; but they have different sizes and configurations for use all over the home. The one pictured above costs £129 plus postage from Denmark, and is available in oak, wenge and beech, and with coloured hooks (see below). 

Here are a few more images to give you a better idea of how it works...

It can also be used as a 'side table', £71, above right. And, below, some more configurations...

As well as these designs, Old and Cold sell a well-edited selection of classic Scandinavian style homewares – from Bjorn Winblad wall plaques to sexy lampshades. 

It is a small but perfectly formed shop.
