Neverending story: stocubo expandable bookshelves
Side storage space with stocubo shelf systems
Books reveal a lot about the tastes and preferences of their owners. Regardless of whether it's a novel, photo or book of poetry: our shelves ensure that your collected works come into their own and, with their unobtrusive white and their purist, modern form, fit perfectly into any furnishing concept and any room.
And if something needs to be protected from prying eyes, our cubes can easily be supplemented with a drawer or door. In addition, some of our cubes can be subdivided with removable shelves – ideal for newspapers or magazines, for example. Our shelf system provides the right size for every book format.
In addition, stocubo bookcases grow with the size of your library. Instead of opting for a rigid shelf with a fixed height and width, which first has to be filled and at some point inevitably reaches its capacity limit, stocubo lets you enjoy complete freedom. Configure your idea for an individual shelf system online and continue building as you wish – after an hour or a year.
Is your book collection expanding? No problem! Our bookshelves adapt to your reading load and can be easily expanded with new cubes made of break-pceiling, bend-resistant wood. Where other shelf systems are literally out of place, you're spot on with stocubo! With our modular bookshelf you can use every corner of your living space. Start configuration right away!

All about our bookshelves
How do I build my bookshelf?
The nice thing about the stocubo shelving system is: there are almost no rules; what is allowed is what you like – and what gravity allows! You have the option of arranging your cubes individually, customised and according to your personal preferences – it doesn't matter whether they're hanging or standing, act as a room divider or wall shelf, as a sideboard, chest of drawers or cupboard, or are in the kitchen, dining room or bedroom. A combination for different functions is also possible – say a chest of drawers and bookshelf in one? With a slide-in box, or do you prefer doors? No problem! With the stocubo modular shelf system you can configure online your own individual furniture that works in every room. Alternatively, we offer online configurations that you can order with a single click.
Which book fits in which cube?
Our 1:1 cubes are ideal for larger, bound books, for example atlases, illustrated books, or magazines and journals. There's also enough space for files and LPs in the traditional dimensions. External dimensions: 35.6 x 35.6 x 35.6 cm, internal dimensions: 33.2 x 33.2 x 33 cm.
Pocket books and DVDs fit particularly comfortably into our 2:3 cubes. External dimensions: 35.6 x 23.7 x 35.6 cm, internal dimensions: 33.2 x 21.3 x 33 cm.
The 1:2 cube accommodates Reclam editions, small octave books and CDs. External dimensions: 35.6 x 17.8 x 35.6 cm, internal dimensions: 33.2 x 15.4 x 33 cm.
We also offer a whole range of additional furniture for increased storage space: for example, you can give particularly large books (for example art books or sample books) a new home in upright 2:1 modules.
Magazines, journals or comic books can also be stored in our so-called F2 and F3 shelf cubes, with compartments to save space. By the way: many of our cubes are available in both full (35.6 cm) and half depth (17.8 cm) so that no space is wasted. The countless, modular combination possibilities of our cubes – available in white with a natural edge and white with a black edge – allow you to adapt bookshelves to your own ideas. You can individually configure our modern shelving system – in both price and dimensions – online.
How do I sort the books on my shelf?
There are no hard and fast rules here either. A best practice is to sort books and magazines by colour and size. This results in a calm and harmonious overall picture, which is emphasised by the simple white cubes.
Do I need base plates for my bookshelf?
Whether or not base plates are required depends largely on your floor. If the cubes are used on a completely flat surface, or if the shelves are very small, base plates are usually not necessary. In the case of sloping floors and high shelves, on the other hand, there is a risk that even the smallest bumps and unevenness on the floor will have an increased impact at greater height and, in the worst case, lead to a crooked and unstable shelf. In order to counteract this physical law, we provide base plates with adjustable feet for our shelf system.
Can I hang the shelf on the wall?
Our cubes can be used as wall shelves using invisible wall mounting. All you have to do is screw two screws into the wall. However, the mountings are primarily intended to attach individual cubes to the wall. A good portion of manual skill is required to install an entire shelf system because every single cube must be precisely mounted using a spirit level and screws.
My bookshelf is very tall. Do I need an additional wall clip?
Our shelf system for books is actually very stable and, given the high quality of our cubes, which are made of unbreakable, bend-resistant wood with full depth, the likelihood of it tipping over is low. If you have very high shelves or an entire bookcase, to be on the safe side we recommend that you are generous in your use of connecting clips when fixing cubes to one another, and also use L-brackets from a hardware store to prevent the top row from tipping over. This also protects the bookshelf from climbing children or jumping cats.
How will my new shelf be delivered?
The individual shelf cubes are delivered fully assembled. Doors or drawers are also ready-made. All you have to do is stack the cubes and connect them with clips – there's no need for the time-consuming and nerve-consuming assembly of individual, modular shelf elements. By the way: small orders are sent via DHL Go-Green, and larger orders via a shipping agent. Within Berlin, delivery is usually made by courier; here, larger orders are also delivered by a shipping agent. And of course everything can also be picked up from us on-site in Berlin-Wedding (for a goods value of up to €200).
