This unusual modular lounge piece was created by Portuguese designer Joana Santos in collaboration with┬áPatricia Fernandes and Ines Carvalho. The concept explores the physical nature of reading and aspires to provide the most comfortable position for the bookwormy user. Comprised of several modular panels, the piece can be put together to create a lounger with several different levels of support – horizontal, vertical and inclined. One of the pieces can even be used as a free-standing foot stool. Santos thought that reading is a process deserving its own furniture. I couldn’t help but agree.
