The Book on The Side

Turn your book upon it’s side, and do not dare you put a soda upon it. Designer Aïssa Logerot turned the book on it’s longer end and found that turning the bookcase on the same axis made for a great way to loosen the space normally taken up by that case on the wall for paintings! Logerot is a furniture maker too, though, so perhaps a dislike for coffee tables came into play!

Yes indeed, in addition to studying industrial design, Aïssa Logerot studied furniture and cabinetmaking at Ecole Boulle. He aims to be both simple and discreet, discreet and practical.

How would this work out for you, book owners?

Wood it be more excellent for you to have this horizontal case, or the more common bookcase today, the vertical?
