Paul Cocksedge created the Invisible Bookend to find out if people will buy an object for its function rather than its appearance.
The Invisible Bookend:
Is a lightweight object that requires no mechanical fitting. It easily holds more than a meter and a half’s length of books, of all sizes.
“I wanted to discover if other people would enjoy as much as I do seeing books displayed without any other object to distract attention from them. This is a design which is not about appearance, only function. That’s the beauty of it.”
