The Bookseat

 

”We cannot revise the plans for contemporary houses effectively unless we take a new look at the furniture question…Furniture, apart from chairs and tables consists almost entirely of storage space.And existing storage units generally have the wrong dimensions and are practically unusable. I condemn such waste of space.” Le Corbusier, 1930

 


The Bookseat, a simple bookcase that playfully curves and becomes a seat, is a creative design responding to the advent of multifunctional spaces in today’s urban living. Noted as one of the “ten must sees” at Toronto Interior Design Show, and awarded for best Design at Montreal’s International Design Show (SIDIM).

The Bookseat is locally sourced and hand-crafted within 100 miles of Fishtnk’s studio in Parkdale, Toronto and is available with a felt cushion in customizable colors and a limited edition leather cushion. The current production of the Bookseat is limited to 100 pieces, uniquely numbered and tagged.
