Bookinist by Nils Holger Moormann

Bookinist by Nils Holger Moormann

We've been sitting on these images since Milan, trying to decide whether the product is brilliant or bonkers... but what the hell. Here is Bookinist, a chair-cum-bookshelf. On wheels. With a reading light. And a cup holder. And a secret compartment.


The arms and backrest can hold 80 paperbacks and there is a concealed drawer that holds reading-glasses, bookmarks, a pencil, pencil sharpener and a notebook - all of which are included with the chair.


Here's some blurb from designer Nils Holger Moormann:


Design Nils Holger Moormann, 2007


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.

The books are stored ready for use in the arms of the chair. A reading lamp, hidden compartments for writing utensils, a cup stand - Bookinist invites you to read and think at your leisure.
