Product Description

Color: White | Size: Small

For an ultra-minimal look, the Conceal bookshelf from Umbra mounts to the wall and becomes invisible behind a stack of books, giving the books the appearance of floating in mid-air. Attach the sturdy, L-shaped shelf to the wall with the included mounting hardware and slide one book onto the ledge so that the ledge is sandwiched between the book's cover and pages. Secure the cover in place using the integrated clips beneath the ledge. Stack up to 15-pound (or 8-inch) of small to medium books on top of the first book until the shelf is obscured from view. Conceal is constructed of strong, powder-coated steel and is available in two finishes. This model measures 5 by 5 by 5-1/2-inch. Also available is a larger size for large books and a wider model that holds two stacks side by side. The patented design by Miron Lior is the winner of many design awards including the Umbra Pratt Design Competition. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this item is donated to the Pratt Institute School of Art and Design. Brought to you by Umbra - the worldwide leader in casual, contemporary, affordable design for the home.

We bought 6 of these shelves for our living room that has a contemporary/industrial feel. We have been very happy with them! They look great, hold a good amount of books and we have received may compliments. The books really do look like they're floating on the wall. They hold about 10-15 books for us. They could probably hold a couple more. No stud necessary when installing. Installing very easy.

I attached my own pictures in the "customer images."

I put a few up in my small living room next to my TV and a IKEA wall-shelf. It looks great and it does hold up a lot. But how much does it hold up? That also depends on your books.

One tip: To know when to stop piling more books on, use your hand and push down from the top a little bit. If it starts to shake and feels quite heavy, it is time to stop and leave it at that.

This is a really great idea for decorating and look great. I bought a couple and may buy more.

Likes
* It can really dress up a drab wall. Much more eye catching that just a bookshelf or photo.
* It's easy to install. Just need 3 screws.

Dislikes
* You have to be choosey with the type of books used. The ones I planned to use were too deep and too heavy. The whole thing sagged. The pictures on the Umbra site show some with a whole stack of books. I wasn't able to get more than a couple of hardcover books on it, without the sagging occurring. Wish they had used slightly thicker gauge metal. For the price charged, they could afford it.
* The single version has 2 mounting holes one above another, so it offers more support. In this double version, it has 3 holes, just slightly above the shelf, in a horizontal row. This might limit the weight bearing capacity.
* The bottom support book only provides support if other books provide weight on the wall side. It also assumes the very small support "hooks" stay engaged on the book cover. If a guest decides to pull a book down to look at it, it is very likely the whole stack will come tumbling down. This should be considered a decorative solution, not a way to store books you will frequently use. Be ready to yell "don't touch those" if you seem someone reaching for them. I would not put anything breakable below these.

Despite some gripes I really like these and they look great on the wall. I think there are some things they could do to improve them, but overall I'm satisfied. I'm recommending them.

i love love love these shelves. i ordered a bunch at the same time. i got 5 little ones and 2 large ones. I had a hard time finding a 2 books that would fit the large ones. you need a book that is at least 7-8 inches wide. i would have stuck with the smaller size had i known. still very happy with them though.

This is exactly what I was looking for, even though I wasn't looking for it. I was fixing up a spare room for my wife to relax. I stumbled on these while looking for a small wall mounted bookshelf. They were very easy to install. I used dry wall anchors and the screws that came with it are nice and long. I have about 5 good size books on one and it doesn't sag at all. It feels real sturdy and looks awesome. I highly recommend these. I uploaded a few pics.

I posted 2 pictures above of the shelves on my wall (4 shelves). I purchased 2 smaller ones and 2 of these Large ones. According to the packaging you can stack up to 20 lbs with no height limit on the large. I stacked 10 hard cover books and didn't come near that 20 lbs. When it comes to the larger one I will tell you that there is a minimum book depth requirement of 7.5 inches. I have a lot of hard cover books, but only 1 that was deep enough to use so I had to borrow one of my children's books for the time being. Another point to make is that they MUST be screwed into a stud in your wall. Do not try to skip this and just put them anywhere.

Definitely worth getting and I'm ordering more right now. I love them and they are original, something different to decorate with. I have one set up as my Library book shelf. LOVE IT!

I saw one of these "invisible" bookshelves at a friends house and was immediately intrigued. When I got home I got on the internet and discovered they were available at a very reasonable price. I ordered three of the small ones, one for myself and the others for gifts. The small size will easily hold books up to ten or eleven inches tall by six or seven inches wide. Everybody who sees mine invariably asks how it works.

So cool! But do note, you have to install on a stud. This makes sense of course because you're going to put a big stack of books on it - BUT I didn't realize and had to change my concept a little bit to work around stud placement.
