Booking It

Standard

Check out this lean(!), green(!), collapsible book storing (er..) machine! from designer Joyce Hong:

It’s called PLoP!, and was created for students on a bugdet (or greenies)((or older nomadic types – hey, hey city dwellers)). Made from eco-friendly corrugated board, it’s both lightweight (about 4 pounds), recycleable, AND extendable – so you can line up the little darlings to house your ever expanding book collection. I don’t know about you, but I could sure use some more book space as my bookshelf is all kinds of over-flowing (I dream of someday having one of those super swanky home libraries, complete with a spiffy spiral staircase leading up to the second floor, and also lots of comfy couches). Sigh.

And continuing on that bookish note, check out this coffee table “book” that opens up to a lamp(!):

Book of Lights by Takeshi Ishiguro.
