showcased at salone satellite during milan design week 2013, japanese design studio YOY have presented a series of objects that enhance storage space. ‘book’ is a book-shaped flower pot that can be used independently or as a divider. made using PVC for waterproofing, the addition opens from the cover page to stand upright – exposing the soil and roots. ‘extend’, the bookend extension can be fixed to a tabletop by clamping to its underside – giving the effect that the supported books are floating. similar to ‘extend’, ‘protrude’ provides a similar balancing effect. instead, the tray works to open desk space – accommodating items such as coffee cups and other stationary office supplies.
