A project to investigate opportunities to design a small scale piece of high quality unusual furniture, using sustainably sourced materials and finishes in the UK.

The result was the Bookie, a handcrafted piece of furniture for storing books and magazines. Launched at the Hay Literary Festival, Bookie received press interest and was purchased by book lovers from all walks of life, including award winning authors, architects, poets and designers.

“Bookie combines functionality with beauty, as a book-magazine store, coffee table, e-reader and laptop home”.
