Booklicious: Bookcase Wednesday

June 22, 2011


Hey look, it's the quarterly indulgence of my tree-as-bookcase lust! Seriously, though, how many hundreds of these are out there? And yet, for as many as I come across, every iteration is noticeably different. This trend is genuinely fascinating. 

The latest addition to our bookcase forest is, simply, Booktree. Designed by Venice-based Kostas Syrtariotis, this solid-wood bookcase debuted earlier this year at Milan Design Week as part of its kidsroomzoom event. But I think the bookcase is sophisticated enough that its aesthetic can appeal to big kids, too - especially the darker finish, which really ups the sleek ante. More info - and a video - here.

Materials: Solid wood, three finishes - ash, tineo, ebony.
Measurements: 90x190x20 cm
