Bookcases are as varied in shape & size as the books they hold. And while some prefer the feel of crisp new book, some people enjoy modern space saving furniture. Creative and quite stylish, the unique design of these “chairs of knowledge” offers a wealth of arrangement choices for your books, and the comfort and practicality of the built-in seating stirs your mood for reading.
The Archive bookshelf line by David Garcia is a detailed look into the connection between books & space. The designer posed the question, ‘How can an individual travel with its own library?’ Having that in mind, this line was born. The Archive II is a round library combination and transportation system. It was designed with Eastern traveling libraries that existed in ancient times in mind. Archive I is a perfectly weight balanced piece of home furniture with chair on one end and books on the other end. David Garcia
