Bibliochaise by Nobody&co
I was just thinking how perfect this would be for my humble little apartment when I read the designer’s quote:
“Twelve years ago we lived in a tiny flat, full of books but with nowhere to sit. Problems are always the best inspirations.That same year we drew the first Bibliochaise: a cube in which to sit, with slots all around to put books in. Geometry is magic. Each time you draw a cube or a square, something wonderful can happen.”
Perfect summary. Apparently the chair can hold 300 books and (even more win) comes in a range of different colors. You can visit it’s home right here.
