The idea for this bookcase came about during an assignment where I was asked to design the interior for a nineteenth century mansion. With the design, I wanted to preserve the authenticity of the building by creating a mix of styles that the house has had throughout the years. And, I must admit, I have a weakness for used objects. If they could talk, they could tell all sorts of stories. This lends them a look and feel that mass-produced furniture does not have. I collected used tables and sliced them in two and stacked them on top of each other. To unify the different elements, I painted the shelves in the same colour.
Like the books are telling stories so would the tables if they could.
A book rack made of old tables.
