Spectacular Vintage Car Bookshelf

At My Modern Met, we love creative designs that rework the functionality of objects. Dutch design studio Denieuwegeneratie thought to convert a car into a tall bookshelf for the interior of their newly-built Dutch Mountain underground villa. By removing its engine, cutting out a large rectangular window in the roof, and placing the vintage Jaguar upright, the once active vehicle is transformed into an intriguingly attractive storage unit and shelving space. The trunk even serves as a lower cabinet.
