Metamorphosis Bookshelf by Sebastian Errazuriz


Bookshelves are usually in the form of simple planks supporting books and the whole picture together seems like a stack. Well, not with artist Sebastian Errazuriz. His extraordinary idea was inspired by the thick ivy that he used to place his childhood garden toys on, and the result of that inspiration was this work of art called Metamorphosis.

It is a Baltic birch plywood furniture piece that was hand carved into an unconventional bookshelf. The end result is the bookshelf that looks like a large tree branch on which you can put magazines and books, as well as various other objects, so the owner can become a part of the design by deciding what to use it for. Metamorphosis has created some mixed opinions.

Some people love it, while others find it pointless. We feel that it might be a nice addition to some nature oriented interiors, or even some minimalist ones.
