if it *were* a true moebius bookshelf, there would *be* no inside loop…
While I appreciate the intent, allow me to be the nit that points out that that is a figure 8 bookshelf, not a Mobius loop.It would need to flip around on itself at one point.
1) What the heck is the thing in the circle at upper right?
2) Why does the curve elevate smoothly on the near side but slump back down precipitously on the far side?
3) It needs bridges to give one access to the inner shelf surfaces. Either that, or it has to raise farther so you can slide underneath. (Mechanic’s creeper available at extra cost.) Or maybe part of each loop should be hinged/wheeled to swing open gatewise.
4) Actually, my reaction to this is the same as my reaction to office cubicle partitions: Cute, but what I really want is the freedom to rearrange the sections to suit my own sense of creativity. (Hm. I wonder if anyone makes a double-helix spiral staircase.)
Also, how would you access the books in the inside loop?
I agree with #1 – it is however Mobi-ish.
The Chemistry dept. at Reading University has a double helix spiral staircase – one helix for going up, one for going down.
