A Child’s Bookshelf that Grows With Time

Categories: Furniture + Lighting, Kids + Baby, Sustainability

RdJ_REKJr_schuin-witRotterdam-based designer Reinier de Jong has designed a bookshelf for children that can expand along with their book collection. The REK Jr. bookcase is a scaled-down version of de Jong’s original REK bookcase, designed several years ago, which was comprised of five interlocking components designed to slide together for more compact storage, and pulled apart for more expansive needs. The diminutive REK Jr is kid-friendly in both size as well as materials: its lighter, cleaner profile comes from sustainably harvested poplar plywood, finished with organic linseed oil wax.
