‘Bedtime stories’ becomes a literal interpretation in the design of the Uroko House Book Igloo [2] — a cozy, fort-like enclosure of bookshelves which encircle a bed. Being surrounded in slumber by books is a bibliophile’s dream, and Point Architects [3] enables lovers of literature to wrap themselves up in their treasured tales while drifting off to sleep in this cleverly constructed lair [2]. The backless shelves allow one to grab a book from inside or outside the Igloo [4]. Conceptually designed for children, we think it’s a telltale sign that as adults, we’re equally smitten with the Uroko House Book Igloo [2], and wouldn’t mind curling up with a good book, or fifty, in one of our own.
