Alexander Kneller's Side Chair 2 looks even more massive IRL than it did in photos of its premiere at last year's London Design Festival; we thought it would be hard to justify putting one of these in our place, until we saw the nifty--and huge--slide-out storage compartments. (Please note that both halves slide out; we were regrettably unable to get a shot of both sides doing so.)
Jettisoning a bookcase and transposing their contents to the SC2 seems like a good, clutter-reducing space swap.
The inspiration for the shape of the SC2 is pretty clear--check out Kneller's Side Chair 1 (in black).
