Designing a Swollen wall
An amazingly innovative design of the swollen wall, which is a 17 m long bookshelf, has been completed by the great French designer Paul Coudamy. The bookshelf has spherical outgrowths and this structure is completed in an apartment in Paris. Inserted between the two main load-bearing walls the spherical bookshelf articulated the different living spaces of the habitation. It creates a hall area in the entrance and it goes above the walls through the bedroom’s dressing.
This is really big storage space. I would say there are around 150 shelves of different shapes and sizes, maybe even more if you start counting them. That’s a lot of space where you can store all your valuable collectibles and art pieces. It’s mostly made for books, but I don’t think anyone has that many books in their home, unless they collect them and it would still be too much. This piece is very large and it might be a problem for those who own smaller apartments but it’s ok because it can also be mounted on two different walls.
This way you can have all the space you need to arrange your stuff. It’s a nice piece for those who like to be methodic and to keep their things in order. But even if you’re not that type of person, this furniture piece can help you become more organized. I would really like to have something like that in my home. I have a lot of small objects that I don’t know where to place so I just keep them in boxes.
