Book & Hero is a clever bookend. A magnet is employed to suspend the superhero in the air, giving the impression of him ‘saving’ the books from an imminent fall. Supershelf is a floating shelf which gives the impression of a superhero holding the books aloft, preventing them from falling to the ground. The base is concealed by the books and the superhero is affixed via a magnet to the base to give the item its dynamic appearance. (via Designboom)
