Designers from a Swedish design company, Smånsk, revealed these magnified Legos that stack up into a whimsical bookcase, at the Stockholm Furniture Fair in February. Because it was only a prototype, they are now actively looking for a manufacturer to produce the product and bring into the mainstream. My bets are on IKEA, because the bold colors and fun shapes truly speak to their approach for design. According to Smånsk:
"All parts of the Skew Bookcase are identical. To assemble it you just rotate the parts and place them on top of each other. The identical parts provides easy manufacturing as well."
