BOOKWORM

August 01, 2017

Every avid reader knows the struggle of finding the perfect nook for devouring the latest Best Seller, or a stylish space to keep an ever-expanding book collection. This week we bring you five designs perfectly suited for your inner bookworm, covering the essentials from shelving to lighting.
606
De Padova
A fluid and extremely flexible system, the 606 can be placed against a wall or used as a room divider with options including shelves, inclined shelves, drawers, rods for clothing, cabinets with fold-away doors, and a desk unit.
LOUISIANA
Vicco Magistretti, 1993
The Louisiana is a true masterpiece of craftsmanship. The artfully rounded curves of this design create a beautiful aesthetic that is both comfortable and practical. The support structure and soft padded interior of this chair make it the perfect place to sit and curl up with a good book.
WIRE BOOK CASE
Achille Castiglioni & Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, 1957
The minimalist design of this piece consists of stripping the bookcase down to absolute necessities. This light and creative bookcase is suspended by steel cables, creating the illusion that the shelves are floating in mid-air.
TWIGGY
Marc Sadler, 2006
The Twiggy is an oversized light with a flexible, adjustable arc inspired by a fishing rod. Thanks to the diffuser, Twiggy’s light is focused downward to create accent lighting while also allowing light to be reflected off the ceiling.
3° REGAL
Aero Architekten, 2015
This unit is completely independent of hardware. The vertical and horizontal wooden pieces are made to fit together like the pieces of a puzzle. With ample flexibility and freedom to extend in all directions, this design can be pieced together in a variety of compositions to fit your needs.
