For many a bookworm, seeing discarded books left out in the rain after a jumble sale or as rubbish is a crime against literature. However, for some eagle eyed pedestrians, the tossed-away books can offer a wonderful design opportunity. This was the case with the construction of the ‘Book Book Shelf’.
‘Not Tom’ is a British Design Studio based in London. Their ethos is to design pieces that are effortlessly functional but which also offer an aesthetic beauty and an engaging attraction. Environmentally friendly design is a priority for them and they consider good design to be fundamentally eco-savvy.
The idea for the ‘Book Book Shelf’ was fuelled by the Studio’s desire to redefine discarded items through ingenuity. I think they have met their intended aim with this book shelf.
What do you think? Read any of those books?
