Book dress

Friday 21 October 2016


Shelf bends on one side when a book is place on that side. The materials used are birchwood for the shelf structure, maple wood for the center resting rod, rubber beneath the base for better grip on the floor or desk. The night lamp has a LED light, the intensity of which can be controlled for user customization.

Barn conversion guest house library

It is a book room with rather more to it than meets the eye. Wanting a place to display her treasured collection, Emma Burns, senior decorator at Sibyl Colefax & John Fowler, transformed a converted barn at her country home into a sitting-room-cum-guest-cottage full of hidden surprises and witty details.

Meredith library seat

Cette "bibli-banquette" puise son inspiration dans un classique du mobilier, la méridienne. Le nom de ce fauteuil tout en longueur désigne en vieux français, la sieste de l'après-midi. Dans sa version bois, Meredith invite, elle, à faire une pause littéraire. Un meuble multifonctions qui s'adapte à toutes les pièces de la maison...

Globe Reader

Imaginez une bibliothèque autrement qu'avec des lignes verticales, horizontales et parallèles. Globe Reader est plus qu'un simple rangement dédié aux livres, elle investit l'espace comme un objet décoratif. Disposez comme bon vous semble les éléments. Empilez les ouvrages pour suivre le dessin des continents. Laissez libre cours à votre imagination. Une création résumée en ces quelques mots de Victor Hugo: "Lire c'est voyager; voyager c'est lire."

Book trench

Due to the north-east monsoon, waves greatly reach and moisten the oceanic trenches of northern Taipei, Taiwan from March to May, which propagates the growth of the seaweed. The design aims to capture the image of such an unique landscape. The green and parallel trenches were turned into well-proportioned bookshelf, creating multiple spaces to place books of varied sizes.

To be or not to be: Science library in the Pavilion of Knowledge, Lisbon

The intention was to have a sense of 'discovery' when entering in this room, to find the books we have to walk along the space. We deliberately wanted to conceal the books in order to avoid the normal bookshelf image of libraries. The contrast between the black on one side and the white on the other, emphasizes the notion of being or not being. Two words are placed on the white surfaces of the shelves, "library" and "investigate", and encyclopedia definitions, such as "to question", "to know", etc in Portuguese and English.
