Design Story

The mobile Bookinist reading chair by Nils Holger Moormann with plenty of storage space for books

The Bookinist is probably the most unusual and unique piece of furniture in decades. The manufacturer Nils Holger Moormann, whose eponym designed the Bookinist, has been producing the mobile reading chair since 2007 and can proudly claim to be the only company that has such an ideal solution for bookworms: the Bookinist is not only a comfortable seat in which you can retreat with a good book, but also a bookcase and reading lamp in one. The armrests and backrests of the armchair have shelves that can hold up to 80 paperback books. There are also small compartments for necessary utensils such as bookmarks, pens or notepads and the integrated reading lamp Rosi Lamp, which is switched on and off by a toggle switch on the armrest. This already fulsome construction is completed with a wheel so that your Bookinist can be moved like a wheelbarrow and follows you into your favourite reading corner. An amazing Nils Holger Moormann creation that invites you to browse and ponder!

Nils Holger Moormann's Bookinist is practical and rich in detail

Space for everything: The storage space in the armrests of the Bookinist by Nils Holger Moormann is generous

Extensive accessories: Creativity unfolds with the Rosi lamp, magnifying glass, bookmark, pencil and other useful detail
