Modular Rotating Bookcase

Designed as a student project for 'client' Scott. Scott had a particular interest in Japanese Manga comics. The bookcase was designed to accommodate the comics which are approximately the size of DVD cases. Since these are small the decision was made to accommodate more comics by making the bookcase two-sided. Each box has a furniture turntable on the bottom and a corresponding groove on the top. The design allows multiple boxes of varying sizes to be stacked on top of each other in any combination. The opposite side is then accessed by simply spinning the boxes around. The central divider can be specified as any shape or pattern. In Scott's case, he had a particular interest in spider web's as a pattern. This was designed and laser cut from acrylic before fitting into the boxes. The larger boxes can be left open to allow for larger books or simple shelves can be fitted. Daniel Edwards
