Behold: A throne that’s also a book shelf for 300 books!

You know how the Game of Thrones’ coveted Iron Throne was forged out of thousands of swords? Well the ‘Bibliochaise’ is kinda like that. It’s both a seat of power and was forged by combining hundreds of books – 300 to be exact – making it the throne of choice for book lovers everywhere.

Created by ‘Nobody & Company’, the comfortable seat features a built-in bookshelf that can store your favourite books or magazine within arm’s reach. It also has a set of wheels, allowing you to move this behemoth of a chair easily. It’s a simple but really cool take on the traditional reading chair and book shelf.

UPDATE: Here’s an excerpt from our exclusive interview with Nobody&Co, the company that makes the ‘Bibiliochaise’.

What was the inspiration behind ‘Bibliochaise’? What made you decide to combine a chair and a book shelf into one item?

The sheer love of reading combined with a perpetual need of more book space. And the desire to celebrate an object—the book—in its time of peril.

When we designed it in ’96, it seemed as if all books were about to suddenly disappear, leaving the void to digital format.

La Bibliochaise was an idea without frills, a kind of ‘missing link’, something that made you think: ‘Hey, look! That looks like something that’s always existed! So why have we never seen it before?’ It’s an idea that fits the equation 1+1= -1, whereby adding what you see, you can understand what is missing.
