Finally, a combined bookcase-chair that isn't hideous. In fact, I think I could display this in my apartment and be pretty darn pleased. It even looks comfy, which is truly impressive. Designed by Mani Mani and Fishbol+Fishtnk, the Bookseat was released in 2008 and nabbed Best Design at SIDIM 2008. Made out of Canadian birch plywood, the Bookseat comes with a custom-color felt seat cushion or a limited-edition leather cushion for truly picky posteriors.
The designers say:
The Bookseat is a simple bookcase that playfully curves and becomes a seat, is a creative design responding to the advent of multifunctional spaces in today’s urban living.
