The product comprises two book shelves and a table, hinged in the middle, and two book shelves that can be constructed in various ways to form flat or angled display stands.
Evans completed the project according to a brief given to his class by Somerset House.
They hope to install four of the systems at the gallery's book shop.
Here's some more information from Evans:
The Somerset House Book Stall System is a clever multifunctional book display and storage solution, which fulfils the needs of the small in space Somerset House new Bookshop. The Book Stall System is a solution to the bad sales of books emerging within the growth of the internet.
Somerset House took a brave step to open a new museum bookshop and the brief was clearly underlining the importance of selling books in a new interesting way. This Product borrows elements from book flea markets, which help the shop sell the products in an exciting and treasure seeking way that only flea markets can provide. The Book Stall System is a combination of three objects, a table and two bookshelves. The bookshelves are made from ash and they are lightweight, which makes the crates easy to be transported and transformed into several functional storage and display solutions. The crate bookshelves are routed and finger joined in a way to create square corners inside the bookcases.
The table is made from plywood and it is using the CNC technology to provide strength and clever storage and display solutions. The material makes the table durable for outdoor use and provides stability in both flat and angular position. Both the table and the crates can be combined in different ways to provide a large range of space-saving display and storage solutions for any products that could be sold in bookshops.
