Modern pyramids for book lovers

Don't think about Egyptian curses which need to be un-riddled by specialists, history lovers or book readers. Here is a discovery I "made" regarding trendy and eco friendly furniture; the pyramidal shelf, a thing which you can't ignore if you happen to be in the same room with it.

I guess furniture designers bet on unusual furnishing just because we can't ignore such things, thanks to their shape or materials used.  Another must have piece of furniture which knows no law of gravity if you happen to close your eyes and only peek at it. And the funny thing is that the pyramid shelf is very light, as it is made out of aluminum.
