CoverBoy by German designer Alex Valder is a bookcase for all those of us who never really got the hang of bookcases and just tend to pile books on top of each other on the nearest surface.

Reminiscent of a flyer or promotional postcard holder, CoverBoy is made from steel wire, is 57cm wide, 71.5 cms high and comes in RAL 7016. So anthracite grey.

Books, records, CDs, postcards, whatever, can be added via gaps on the sides and it has three storage levels.

The advantage of CoverBoy over a conventional bookcase is, as the name cleverly implies, the covers of the books are presented to the room. Thus allowing you to display the book covers as, if not always art, then definitely as part of the rooms decoration concept.
