Awesome bookshelf/library/seating

http://www.yankodesign.com/2010/11/18/this-seats-a-circle-library/

An actual product, it’s a cylindrical seat where the exterior is a gently rocking series of bookshelves. I don’t know if parametrics were used, but conceivably you could play with parametric variation of the radius, the size of the boxes and variation as they go up the unit, etc.

Want.

  1. Well spotted! The 3 rings are perfect circles nudged out of sync’. And yes, this allowed for a variety of sizes and shapes of book, artifact to be stored. The wood also thins out towards the top. The base begins as 18mm ply, then tapers down to 6mm at the apex. This helps it rock more smoothly and allows for a more subtle overall shape. Thanks for the interest. Tom
