“Buying books would be a good thing if one could also buy the time to read them; but as a rule the purchase of books is mistaken for the appropriation of their contents.”― Arthur Schopenhauer, Counsels and Maxims (The Essays of Arthur Schopenhauer).
Modern chair with integrated bookshelves and storage compartments has enough room for hundreds of magazines and books.
Made out of painted wood and leather, “Bibliochaise” is available in white, black, and other color combinations.
Designed by Alisee Matta and Giovanni Gennari of Nobody&co.
’Twelve years ago we lived in a tiny flat, full of books but with nowhere to sit.
Problems are always the best inspirations.
That same year we drew the first Bibliochaise n: a cube in which tosit, with slots all around to put books in.
Geometry is magic.
Each time you draw a cube or a square, something wonderful can happen.’ (nobody&co)
Nobody&co made its debut during the Milan show 2006 with la Bibliochaise,
the armchair-library that holds 5 metres of books (now an established design cult classic); the Piola bookcase, an original book-shelving system and il Buddino, the pudding mould shaped liked a buddha.
Piola Modern BookcasePIOLA is a new modern wall bookcase, with a totally new shelf system. This new bookcase system from my perspective is designed just to make things beautiful for the eye. If you have a lot of books this bookcase is not something for you. It comes in two sizes with choice of peg colors and board style – glossy white lacquered or solid wood. – Via nobodyandco.it
