Geographically-based bookcases.

Inspired by Smånsk‘s design for Vagabond’s new travel book store in Stockholm (pictured left / photo by Carl Kleiner; discovered thanks to Dezeen), graphic designer/metal manipulator extraordinaire Ross Connard and I have been collaborating on a design of our own.

I’ve been calling it the Stuyvesant Street Bookcase, named after the street where I first met Quentin Regos, but that’s only a working title. In fact, any benefactor who wishes to back the fabrication of this design can have it named after them!

Below is some of the preliminary project work:

July 25′s daily design idea is the physical settings of memorable moments are worth celebrating. Why not celebrate with a piece of design work?
