Holy Eco-Bookcase, Batman!
Reclaimed Wood Rotating Bookcase

State of Green

How's this for cool: the UnWaste bookcase is a unique storage solution that reduces visual clutter with a Batman-like twist.

Created by architect Ben Milbourne, designer Leyla Acaroglu and furniture designer David Waterworth, the UnWaste was designed as a storage solution and room divider for a warehouse conversion in Melbourne. The shelf rotates between the living area and bedroom, allowing for full access from both sides. It can also remain partially open to extend light and airflow through the space.

The shelf is crafted from reclaimed plywood taken from Melboure construction sites. I like that the wood has been left in its found state, which means some of the wood retains graffiti markings and paint. I think it creates a found art dynamic that works well in an urban warehouse environment.

Now...To the Batmobile!, or in my case that would be "To the Honda Civic!", which just doesn't have the same ring to it.
