Story Bookcase

Designed by Afteroom

A real page-turner.

Fascinated by how spaces transform over time, Hung-Ming Chen and Chen-Yen Wei invented the word Afteroom to name their Stockholm studio. “We simply want to create things people won’t get rid of,” says Chen-Yen. In creating the Story Bookcase (2017), they brought a new twist to Sapien-style vertical book storage by allowing the user to position the shelves facing forward or to the side. By holding texts horizontally in a vertical stack, Story holds dozens of books in a very compact footprint. “It was not an easy task, though it appears really simple,” says Hung-Ming. “We hope people see it as a quiet, functional sculpture.” All-metal construction and a heavy weighted base provide strength and stability. Made in Taiwan.
