jasper morrison gives penguin a new home for books: the penguin huddle

SCP showcases new designs for 2018 at maison & objet in paris, one of them the result of an invitation by the much loved british publishing house, penguin. asked to create a new home for books, an original design by jasper morrison offers a new way to store your much loved stories in form of ‘the penguin huddle’. the adjustable book clamp is morrison’s contribution to keeping these ‘aura-infused’ objects together in the home.

featuring a laser-etched penguin logo on either end, the penguin huddle – of course, inspired by the collective noun for a group of penguins – is made from two sections of folded aluminium joined together with a sliding mechanism. it can hold between 18 and 27 books and accommodates paperbacks of all sizes.

jasper morrison‘s design aims to explore how we experience books, connecting the way we read with the way we live. by expanding, the unit looks to accommodate a reader’s growing collection books, rather than a collection growing to suit the given space of a bookshelf itself.
