While the bookend might seem like a boring design subject, Henry Julier has improved upon the very practical object in thoughtful ways. The Brooklyn-based industrial designer debuted Reference as part of Norma Studio’s exhibit In Support of Books at the LA Art Book Fair. Designed to support larger, heavy books, as well as vinyl records, with a thicker gauge than the standard sheet steel bookend, Reference won’t flex when faced with the oversized or bulky, and forgoes the old-school design of reliance on downward weight to stay in place. A minimal fold at the top echoes the base, and allows for easy movement.
