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.

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.
