White Sapien Bookcase

Our Italian-designed and manufactured Sapien Bookcase turns traditional library storage on end. Ten shelves hold stacks of books horizontally to occupy a minimum of floor space. When fully loaded, the bookcase virtually disappears behind the books for the ultimate expression of minimalism. It's artistic organization at its best! See more product details below.

  • All-steel construction
  • Weighted base for stability
  • Original Italian design by Bruno Rainaldi

Love the looks but did not last! I bought this and immediately fell in love. It looked great initially. However after few months (maybe 3-4 months) it started tilting and now it looks like the Pizza tower, totally bent. Very disappointing.... July 29, 2014
Great purchase This holds more books than I expected, and will handle even large 9x12 hardback books. Takes very little space, but the books are still easily accessible. It was easy to assemble, although a bit heavy for one person to do it single-handedly. July 8, 2014
Top Notch Stylish Bookcase Much more stylish & versatile bookcase than I imagined. Holds all size books, notebooks, magazines & media materials with a small footprint. Looks gorgeous as well. Putting it together is a 2 person operation because of the height of the bookcase & the proximity of the screws, but easy nonetheless. Very sturdy. Holds much more material than I had envisioned. June 28, 2014
Very Good Bookshelf Looks good. Does it's job (holds books). Takes up very little space. June 27, 2014

Anchoring?

I assume this needs to be anchored to the wall at the top? Or is it simply a matter of stacking the smaller books at the top, larger at the bottom?

How safe is this around children?

My grandson is age 3. There may be more in the future. How hard is it to be knocked over or pulled down by a child? I would like to put children's books on it. I have a lot from when mine were kids, but not a lot of space for a traditional bookshelf.

Answer: 
The bookcase weighs 31 pounds and when weighed down with books, it shouldn't topple easily but we recommend placing it against a wall for safety. You may want to consider the option below instead.
