This totally cool custom bookcase was designed for a condo in DC's DuPont Circle area by dbd studio. They designed the whole thing digitally then cut it from sheets of birch plywood using a CNC machine. The result is both a storage area and an art object itself.

The bookcase had to avoid interfering with various impediments that were already in the space such as the recessed lights, sprinkler heads, air vents and fire alarms along the hallway ceiling.

Found originally at +mood.
