These Flinstone-esque Nooks are the Bookshelves of the Future
"You name the shelf, we’ve seen it: built-ins, honeycombs, floating planks, industrial racks—the list goes on. The latest adaptation, though, is nothing like any of these options. The storage solution in question: recessed wall niches.
“The inspiration comes from typical Mediterranean architecture,” says Kim Haddou, who, alongside her design partner, Florent Dufourcq, created one of these nook-like displays for the 2018 Design Parade in Toulon, France. Since then, we’ve been seeing these nooks everywhere, from Simon Porte Jacquemus’s Oursin restaurant in Paris to the newly opened Sonia Boyajian jewelry store in Los Angeles, designed by Studio Shamshiri."
