Spotted this clever design idea from design studio Aust & Amelung, based in Germany, which focuses on innovative furniture designs that help us interact with everyday objects in our lives. A great example is their “book box” a genius display of turning books into boxes that can be mounted on the wall and open up to store items. I think this would make a fantastic idea for a children’s room or library.

From Aust & Amelung:

“A book box presents the beloved, yet long-not-read, book mounted to the wall. Framed and exhibited, it is presented with a new functionality. Opened, the book covers the contents inside. Closing the book opens the box. The book turns into a trap door that reveals a storage area or secret compartment.”
