Mind Design - Znips

There seems to be no shortage of clever things that can be done with unwanted books. Case in point...


I'm liking this large art piece that London graphic design team, Mind Design, created as wall decor for Znips, a hair and beauty salon in Central London. The shaped books are likely to be in sync with clients' thoughts as they sit and ponder new hair styles.


Curved books tie in nicely with the rounded letters of the Znips logo, also designed by Mind Design.


The salon's brochure is in unison with the decor and logo as well.

  2. Such an interesting find Ann! Looks like it is made of sea shells. And what a way to upcycle.

  3. Another fabulous find! Not only is the rolled-books concept itself so creative, the shades of colors chosen have such a lovely effect!

  5. A terrific re-use of something most of us would toss in the recycle bin. And I love books.
    The traditional paper book is dead. Long live books!

  12. Thanks, everyone. I agree, the different shades of paper add so much to the piece. Carole, yes, it must be heavy... super glue perhaps?!
