Books and their Uses

The very cool information desk in the library at Delft University of Technology.


(via Recyclart)

I have a [very disorganised pile] table made out of books just like that by the side of my bed!

  3. Yes, I would love to see it too. Some of the comments on the original post were very interesting and a few wondered why the spine of the books weren't shown. I didn't find an answer but I did find this bookshop http://thedesignfiles.net/2008/04/brunswick-bound/
    with a similar desk.

  4. Love this idea. I am sure I can find enough"discarded" books for a side table at least.

  6. I love using old books like that. I drilled through a stack of them a few years back and made a lamp base.

    My first visit to your Blog---it's wonderful!

  7. Now a lamp base - that sounds great! Not sure I have the skills to make one though. Not sure I could even build the table without it wobbling and toppling over.
