Stair bookcase

For a private house in Muswell Hill, London.
"We were asked to convert the loft of a private house into a bedroom with a study, which was to include a large bookcase, whilst still keeping to a very tight budget. As the conversion required the creation of a new staircase to the loft, we designed a combined solution that incorporated the staircase and bookcase into a single element."

Transitory bookshelf

This bookshelf responds to a well-known dilemma: books pile up in our homes because we don’t have time to read them. Transitory Bookshelf combines two sloping platforms that help us to manage this problem: the "read!" section reminds us that we should take the time to read; the "read." section helps us to digest recently read books before they blend into our main bookshelf. Made of aluminium composite, this object is manufactured using a single-step digital cutting and engraving process. Once folded and glued, it is perfectly rigid.

"The profiles of the buildings in big cities have been my source of inspiration. The breakdown of the volumes of the buildings has created a series of staggered floors which may contain several objects, creating a fascinating urban setting.The open side allows you to see the books collection, beyond the limits of narrow frontal view"

Revolving bookcases

A new interpretation of traditional revolving bookcases. Folkform believe, that in this time of increased digitalisation of texts, the book as a physical object will become increasingly desirable and that the reader will prefer a smaller number of well chosen volumes housed in a beautiful piece of furniture to a large number of books in a wall-to-wall bookcase.
