It’s Gonna B-OK

My favorite thing about the B-OK bookshelf by Marica Vizzuso is the subtle, smart play on words in the title—reducing "book" to "be okay." Just as inventive and subtle, her combination of the often very practical room divider (I could use one in my basement to set off my office) with the designed bookshelf. Not only does the B-OK turn your books into objects of design interest, it helps you divvy up that open floor plan space temporarily and elegantly.

The tower is composed by four woods panels  with the cross cuts of different size and dimension which allow the horizontal arrangement of books. The panels are assembled together by metal hinges on three edges while the fourth has magnets to allow the closure of the bookcase.
