Made from wood and elastomer WaSnake is a shelf whose topology can be reconfigured to suit any specific space or whim. Developed by Jean Louis Frechin and showcased at the International Milan furniture show it is also a luminous digital object and a device for relaying discreet information in the home – comments, addresses, the useful and the playful. WaSnake displays SMS messages sent to the home address as well as news-sheets from the user-selected RSS. It houses a cluster of coloured LEDs and optical fibres that form a screen. The system is linked to a computer and serves as an interface for selecting and creating information and communication channels. It is also an interface for direct physical contact, by which users choose various display protocols. The operating software is composed of independent units (Widgets) each linked to parts of the shelf.

The Bookman is a bookshelf in the shape of a man and is a highly decorative piece of furniture as well as a sculpture. Designed by East Anglian artist Kazmierz Szmauz who also designed the CDMan, the DVDMan and Videoman. However, as booksellers we regard Bookman as his highest achievement. The Bookman holds about 100 books and looks most splendid when they are leatherbound books which we can also supply. He measures 70 inches high by 45 inches wide and is made from Mahogany, although other woods can be used. Shelves are best adapted to books beneath 8 inches in height.
