It Slices, It Dices: Bookinist, the Crazy/Clever Chair for Reading, Thinking, Moving


We aren't sure if this design is clever or crazy: Bookinist, a combination chair/bookcase with a reading light, cup holder, and a more few surprises that combine to give new meaning to the term "bookmobile." The arms and backrest can hold 80 paperbacks, and the chair hides secret compartments for reading glasses, bookmarks, pencils, a pencil sharpener and a notebook (all included with the chair) and adds and a wheel for easy mobility. Says designer Nils Holger Moormann, "Bookinist is a movable chair designed especially for reading. It is based on the principle of a pushcart and can be rolled to a favourite spot...Bookinist invites you to read and think at your leisure." The self-taught German designer uses birch plywood and felt for the chair, which, though it looks a bit boxy, follows his company's precedent for "innovative characteristics, precise detailed solutions and simple form".
