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

White Sapien Bookcase 4.5 5 13 13

White Sapien Bookcase Handy next to desk to hold books for any project I'm working on. Keeps my desk surface clear. March 20, 2014
Unique and Easy to Assemble I just love the Italian design of the Sapien bookcase! The unique design holds a large number of books in a very limited amount of space. It easily holds much larger books then the small metal shelves would seem to indicate. Now I must say the box arrived very badly damaged with a very large hole. Almost the entire box was covered in tape. The metal pieces were in fine shape (no scratches or dents) but the instructions and screws were missing. Called the Container Store customer service number and got a very helpful associate who assured me the box did not leave the Container Store warehouse in such horrid condition and replacement screws and instructions would be sent ASAP. They arrived four days later. Bookcase is now assembled. It was a breeze to put together. Could hardly be easier. It looks great and love the uniqueness of it. Also, it holds many more books then I expected. LOVE IT! March 14, 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.
