January 23, 2008 Having guests over but not sure where they will sit? Why not use the bookshelf. That's the theory behind the Shelving Chair from Jun Murakoshi Design which subverts the idea that chairs lose all usefulness when stacked away.

Made from timber, plywood and paper honeycomb panel, the Chair's clever box + A-frame design allows it to spend most of its life as a shelf and when needed, off come the books, photo frames and vases and it gets re-invented as a chair.
