Bookinist/ Nils Holger Moormann








Quote:
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.
About 80 paperbacks can be stored ready for use in the arms and the backrest of the chair.
With a reading lamp and hidden compartments for writing utensils (reading-glass, bookmarks, pencil, pencil sharpener and a pocketbock are included) Bookinist invites you to read and think at your leisure.

The setup in this room is ideal for a reading environment, although it seems designed for a very tall person!

that one with the wooden armrest #136 that opens up & can put books in
--it's like a lunchbox/suitcase would be totally awesome just as that ... minus the chair ideally though, not as heavy

I wonder if they have all been read or just bought to fit in with the colours?
I recently had (and actually still doing) to put all my library in boxes... so had to see all the books i have.... like 15 boxes (i have some lot of pockets books....) - it's not that much but as i'm just in my twenties it's ok... planning to buy more.... a lot more!
it just came to my mind i hadn't read 30% of them.... It's not just to decorate that i buy books... i'm a paper freak and just love looking and then reading.... i just buy and sometimes don't read....
but if i had to decorate my library with books it would be with La Pleďade not something with colours....

^ thanks! i'm glad u liked! it's such an ingenious use of space.

just a tip: i was at my local library and i noticed the librarians doing this, they would push the smaller sized books forward to make them all even in the front. so i went home and tried it, and it makes it look so much better. do other ppl know about this?

This room is almost too extravagant for my taste, but I do like the rich, warm colors.

absolutely not... if they would do this in university library then it would sooo easier to find the pocket books....
But I don't do this as I prefer to put big books all together and pocket books all together.... it's easier to me...
but i'll try in my next library....

^ that room is too rigid for my tastes....nothing cosy or inviting about it....although i do love those 2 chairs on the left and i'm sure with the fireplace in the winter it is much cosier....

Do any of you buy books you'd never read just because of the cover? Just so your bookshelf can look the way you want it?

If I owned one of those rooms posted that are old, I'd probably buy a lot of old looking books regardless of what they were about.

Never. Half the time I don't pay attention to covers in the first place. I'm more interested in the content.
