Build yourself a bookloo

Niume is an industrial design site and there are some fascinating designs featured. Much of it relies on recycling or repurposing and it is truly inspirational. So what are we going to do with all those books? I am very attached to mine. I was brought up on books and I revere and respect them, but even so, I can see we need to let paper go. Its production is now degrading the planet, it takes up space ,contributes to clutter and harbours dust and nasties. Technology will help us reinvent and clear our spaces. I hate seeing books put in bins because no one is using them or no one has read them. Archiving for the future will be important but we have mass produced so many books for a whole densely populated planet. I like the notion of this bookloo. “Home” is a sculptural installation by Colombian artist Miler Lagos. It is a modern look at books and how they could be repurposed ,conserved and fit into a modern landscape. The installation is totally self supporting. It would make a great little spot for reading and for hiding out with a laptop or tablet. We need to consider how we shall recycle and reinvent .Artists are showing us the way.
