Push Your Books Off Your Table

Desks have limited space and therefore prime real-estate can be incredibly valuable as things like computers, books and paper pads all fight for coveted spots. But design duo Naoki Ono and Yuki Yamamoto – together they make up the design unit YOY – have come up with a clever way to extend your desk while also rendering a neat optical illusion.

The aptly titled “Extend” bookend can be secured to just about any table or desk with a clamp. The minimal, barely visible design makes it look like books have been pushed off the desk and are floating in mid-air.
