Book Of Life Will Open




In traditional China, there is a common paean: "A book holds a house of gold, a book holds a fair lady". To be more traditionally Western, many would claim that “I read, therefore I am.”

For this project, the owner is a professor. As such, we placed books at the center of the design concept. The core colors of reading, black, gray and white, dominate the design, while natural wood colors harken back to traditional libraries while hinting at scrolls and book covers. Knowing how intimately bibliophiles examine books, the design incorporates all of the aspects of the physical object.

To create modern feeling furniture, while maintaining the book theme, we used shapes that felt like folded paper. The television stand, the dining table, the coffee table legs and many other aspects use this approach.
