Comments Off on ‘The Motion’ Bookshelf Doubles as a Curvaceous Rocking Chair!

There’s nothing quite like settling into a comfy seat to read a good book , and it’s even better when your bookshelf doubles as a rocking chair! Designed by Hyunjin Seo from the Seoul-based design group KamKam , ‘The Motion’ is a curvaceous multi-tasking bookcase that also serves as a literary lounge chair. We love how Seo’s clever rocking design saves space and materials that would otherwise be used for two separate pieces of furniture – and it seems a lot more stable than the rolling bookshelves that we’ve seen in the past. + KamKam Via The Blog On The Bookshelf Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: “green furniture” , bookcase chair , books , bookshelf chair , bookshelf rocking chair , green bookshelf , green chair , green design , green library , Hyunjin Seo , kamkam , library , multi use furniture , space-saving design , sustainable design , the motion , Transforming Furniture , two in one design

We’ve seen artists find endless inspiration in these pieces, crafting robots from discarded circuit boards , upcycling old monitors into aquariums , and now, meticulously creating detailed wall art from computer keys. St. Louis-based artist Sarah Frost collects cast-off keyboards from everyone ranging from friends to small businesses to government offices, and uses the monochrome pieces to create pixelated displays of art that play with the eyes.
