As If From Nowhere: Bookcase Conceals 2 Tables, 4 Chairs

A spare table and chairs can always come in handy, and theoretically should not have to take up much space – but short of cheap folding varieties, there are few solid-structure alternatives for such situations.

So what if you could simple slip out six furniture objects from their storage space right inside your bookcase? Orla Reynolds has a first class honours degree in Design Interior and Furniture from DIT and plans to take this concept public via a mass-produced version based on her work to date.

“As if from nowhere… is an independently functioning bookcase which houses four dining chairs and two tables that when placed together become a dining table. It is intended for small living spaces or for those who wish to cater to the unexpected guest.” To reinforce the concept, bright primary colors show you where the secret furniture is situated and provide natural highlights to the blank white bookshelves.
