Harking back to the romantic era of long, luxurious voyages by sea, the Globetrekker range is inspired by an original trunk from 1914 that Timothy Oulton discovered at an antiques market. Intrigued by the intricate detailing and beautiful brass plate of the trunk, Tim deconstructed the antique, redesigning it to encompass a full collection of lamp tables, chests, coffee tables, and bookcases, evolving with a range of different innovative finishes. Globetrekker has a distressed aluminium finish inspired by military aircraft, transporting the original Globetrekker into the dynamic, modern world of travel.

This bookcase is inspired by the legendary Rubik’s cube! Freely inspired by such an iconic object, we created its perfect transposition into a piece of furniture: a unique and revolutionary bookcase. A solid, fun and adaptable bookcase that perfectly suits spaces with a strong personality, creating an absolute design corner. We imagined two completely rotatable horizontal surfaces (the base clearly remains still) which give the bookcase many customization options and modularity in use. The future calls to the movement: you cannot stand still! It’s time to move your home!

The concept became popular on Reddit, with the r/booknooks subreddit going from zero to 7,900 members in just two days. The website defines book nooks as "mini worlds created within your bookshelf", usually as a diorama of an alley. The idea seems to have originated in 2018 from a Japanese artist called Monde. They created a "back alley bookshelf" made to fit alongside paperback books. The tweet has been liked 179k times since.
