This architectural installation of a wave-like modular book structure and a cylindrical space shows the intensive spatial atmosphere exerted by books. The open installation condenses the intimate feeling of old libraries from which anybody finds it hard to escape. Large used books of outdated titles and too old to be read, are assembled with a special designed metal connector. An endless modular meta-grid applies its function to walls, room dividers or shelves.
Ideally the developing structure is a personalised object. Old books find a new use which have been collected through a lifetime - the ‘books’ structure will be like no other, a distinctive modular wall is created!

The Book Nook was finished and painted by Iowa City artist Deanne Wortman and her woodworker son, Eric Wortman.

Establish a relationship between the convenience and the playful, taking advantage of the material flexibility. The modules allow users to choose the appearance of the bookshelf by adding or removing modules, according to their needs and available space. Modularity also allows playing with shapes and colors. The result may be a bookcase that has one, two, or many colors. Finally, no matter how large or small, high or low this bookcase can be, the fun is to have a modular and flexible bookcase that deforms under the weight of books and objects and can be always changing appearance.

Made from solid wood (in this case, Walnut) and suspended by a solid steel square rod mount, this shelf can hold both your bike, as well as anything else you want on it quite easily. If you want to just showcase your bike, that’s fine, but if you want to utilize the space for books, flowers, bike accessories, etc., that’s what it’s there for.

Paperback is a wall system. Strength of the design is that it absorbes a minimum of space in your interior, but at the same time has a striking appearance. By completing the Paperback with books, CDs or little glass or ceramic products, it gets a very own, almost custom made chart and set of colours. Paperback can be used as a small, big or even wall-to-wall system and is standard available in white.
