We all have favorite reading rooms and spots, but as daylight changes or our mood shifts would it not be nice to move not only ourselves but our seats and book collections as well?
Nils Holger Moormann is no stranger to unique-but-functional one-off and offbeat design ideas. At first glance these seem like strange designs, but shown in context they appear right at home.
The original lounge-chair-with-bookshelves combination, the Bookinist, was designed with all kinds of niches in mind, from hand-ready right-in-front book storage to additional side shelves for even more volumes.
The leaner follow-up design humorously called the “Easy Reader” is simple, streamlined and further emphasizes the combined aesthetics of of the minimalist bookworm with those of the automobile aficionado.
“Bookinist is a movable chair designed especially for reading. It is based on the principle of a pushcart and can be rolled to any favourite spot. About 80 paperbacks can be stored ready for use in the arms and the backrest of the chair. With writing utensils such as reading-glass, bookmarks, pencil, pencil sharpener and a pocketbook in hidden compartments and a reading lamp Bookinist invites you to read and think at your leisure.”
Both mobile chair-bookcase-carts fit right in with the rest of Holger Moormann’s highly recognizable work, which you can check out on ArchiProducts.

As an autodidact, lateral entrant and free spirit, Nils Holger Moormann and his design team have been developing furniture with a reduced design language and precise detailed solutions since 1982. The guiding principles of simplicity, intelligence and innovation run through the entire company philosophy.
