Product Description

Size: Large | Color: Silver

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 medium to large 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 5-1/2 by 7 by 6-1/2-inch. Also available is a smaller size for small 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. Designed by Miron Lior for Umbra- original, modern, casual, functional and affordable design for the home.

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.

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.

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 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!

These shelves are a clever idea - books appear to be floating on your wall. As one can see from the picture on this product page, the back cover of the bottom book fits into a small groove. With other books placed on top, the bottom book is held securely in place. I installed several of these shelves in my kitchen for cookbooks. They work best for relatively light, narrow books (the shelf started to strain a bit under "The Joy of Cooking"). However, only the bottom book needs to be hard back.

Installation was extremely easy -- just screw the shelf into any wall normal wall (e.g., drywall, paneling). No anchors are needed. I was a bit skeptical at first and expected for the books to fall or the shelf to bend, but no accidents after over a week. All in all, these shelves work well and are an interesting way to display your books. I just think that they should be a bit less expensive, as they're basically metal brackets; hence the four stars.

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 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.

I did a wall of these floating shelves to take advantage of some unused space in our small Boston apartment.
I bought two of these large ones, 3 of the small ones, and 5 of the double-wide ones.

I made corner shelves with one of the 'single' ones and one of the '2 wide' shelves (See my customer images). For these, I used toggle bolts that are rated for something like 200lbs. (I use them for everything that I'm putting up not into a stud. You can get them on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/Toggler-Toggle-FF-B-588-D-Specifications-Threads/dp/B0051IAQN2/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1362412360&sr=8-4&keywords=snap+toggle) The holes were slightly too small for the standard sized bolts I was using, so I just drilled them out a mm or two bigger. Not a hard fix, just a bit irritating when I realized it on the first one when I was on the ladder. The small one also had this problem. One convenient thing is that the anchor holes on the large one and the small one are in the same spot. If you find you need a different size, you can always replace it.

This large one won't work with a regular-sized hard back book, (ie Harry Potter hard back sized). I have a bajillion books, so finding one that worked wasn't hard, but it can't be just any hard back book. The smaller sized ones can deal with a regular sized hard back book or even a 'book club' sized hard back. It just makes the shelf smaller. I wish the smaller size was made with the same thickness of metal as the larger size. I think it would help with any sagging issues. That being said, I adjusted the books I had on each shelf until they were the right heaviness - I couldn't put all high quality/heavy paper/academic books on one shelf and all trade paperbacks on another - I mixed them up.
