Legend Bookshelf at Roche Bobois

Saturday, February 24, 2007

If I had my way, I’d spend all the ding-dong day making things and fixing up apartments. Sadly, I haven’t figured out how I might be able to making a living doing just that, but I’m lucky enough to have making things be a part of my job. So, if you’ll indulge me, from time to time I will share with you some of the things I have seen, loved and about which I have thought: Hey, I could make that! One thing I saw recently and wanted to fabricate myself was the Legend Bookcase by Christiophe Delcourt for Roche Bobois. (I first spied it in Dwell magazine.) What a clever new interpretation on the everyday bookshelf. It’s a smart-aleck design, but still subtle. Looking at it, I figure I could recreate it with less glamorous wood and a bit of patience. So if I ever find myself with a chunk of free time on my hands in the near future, will someone remind me to give this project a whirl?

I wonder how it would work with actual books in/on it, since those tilted pieces wouldn't make very good book ends. And would it be sturdy enough if filled with books? Only two little feet on the bottom.
