San Francisco Designers Mike and Maaike have come up with a fascinating new piece called the JUXTAPOSED : Religion. Basically, it's a simple hardwood bookshelf with 7 notches carved out. Each notch holds a religious text such as the Bible, Qur'an, Bhagavad Gita, Analects of Confucius, the Tao Te Ching, Discourses of the Buddha and the Torah. According to the designers, "For the first time, the world's most influential religious texts are brought together and presented on the same level, their coexistence acknowledged and celebrated."
Do you think the empty right hand side of the shelf represents Atheism or is it just a good spot to shelve your Harry Potter collection?
