Those Clever Dutch / by Michelle Linden

I'm really digging the designs by the Dutch partnership Bureaudebank from Utrecht. I really enjoy following Dutch design and architecture, but especially the product design. The shelves above are what first caught my eye.... I'm a big proponent of using interesting materials in a new way (check out the rubber that keeps the books from falling off!). BUT, its the lamp that has really stolen my heart. I just love products that combine two or more uses. And who couldn't love a table lamp that doubles as a bookcase!
