It's been ages since I saw some shelves that really stood out from the rest but these certainly do. This magnetic bookshelf is the work of Swen Krause and was designed for Nils Holger Moorman, a German furniture outfit.
The unit consists of two parts, a giant metal slab that is attached to the wall horizontally or vertically, and individual shelf cubbies that have a strong magnet backing. Stick the cubbies onto the magnetic backing however your inner contemporary designer sees fit. Allowing yourself/consumer to be the designer has so much scope in many fields of design and I reckon these guys could rake it in if properly marketed.
