Although not a new design, I just discovered it so it’s new to me! Japanese company BCXSY’s Seesaw bookshelf is a pretty neat concept. I bet you could put books you’ve read on one end and ones you’ haven’t read yet on the other. Which side would be heavier for you?

Young Italian designer Marica Vizzuso has designed B-OK, a space-saving alternative to the usual bookshelf. Vizzuso asks, “Why do you place books in a conventional way when you can have both an amusing and aesthetically interesting alternative?” The shelving system is constructed like a giant tower, yet unfolds into a room divider. Instead of stacking books side-by-side, you pile books on top of one another into a variety of slots.

This hidden bookcase turned your home into a stealthy secret lair. The hidden bookcase folds in half by sliding on steel tracks embedded in the floor and built into the header panel, both of which are completely hidden when the bookcase is in its normal unfolded position. Fill the thing up with books, and nobody will know this secret book. It is available now for $3000.
