Needing more space on a bookshelf is always a problem, but the 'Platzhalter' allows for those few extra books that you may need to squeeze in, with room for a couple more.

This interesting design solves the 'lack of space' problem, but I have to question its sturdiness upon filling the extra space. Hidden board stretches between the split halves and widens the usable surface.

The classical rectangular shape turns into a 'V'-shaped outline until the shelf reaches its defined limit.
