Collapsible, recyclable bookshelves for people on a tight budget

These Plop! bookshelves from designer Joyce Hong are a real innovation. They’re made from rigid cardboard, weigh only 4 pounds, and are easy to set up and to take down for easy transport. You just have to remove the packaging, pull open the bookshelf, and attach some back supports. The the basic 4-section unit can be extended to 6, 8, 10 sections and still be collapsible. And once you’re through with them, you can collapse them and carry them with you, or simply recycle them.

I’m assuming they’re inexpensive, though I couldn’t find a place to purchase them.

What do you think? Would these ever appeal to you?

Thanks to Gizmodo for the link.
