P.O.V. Bookcase

£6,666.67 GBP
Shipping calculated at checkout.

Add a unique touch to your home or office decor with our P.O.V. (Point Of View) Bookcase. Inspired by Agamograph art (an art form that uses optical illusions), the P.O.V. Bookcase uses colour to create two distinct aesthetics when viewed from different angles. Stand to the left, and the bookcase appears in one colour; move to the right, and another colour emerges. This simple act of movement creates a unique and striking effect that transforms the P.O.V. Bookcase, and the space it occupies, from a traditional bookcase into a fun and unparalleled visual experience. Perfect for homeowners, interior designers, and office spaces looking to add a dynamic and artistic element to their decor.

Key Features:

  • Two Tone: By applying a different colour to each side of its vertical supports the P.O.V. Bookcase conceals a dual nature that only reveals itself as the user journeys past.
  • Engaging: Through the simple and effective application of colour, the P.O.V. Bookcase becomes a visual curiosity that compels the user’s engagement. It requires them to traverse across the room to witness its dynamism, or it allows them to nestle themselves in a particular spot where the colour they see resonates most with their mood.
  • Designed to Last: P.O.V. is constructed from laminated plywood, making the surfaces hard-wearing and durable. They are also resistant to water, chemicals, abrasions, colour fading and stains, allowing for easy cleaning and maintenance.
  • Designed for Life: The large scale of the P.O.V. Bookcase ensures there is plentiful storage for all of life’s demands.
  • Customisable: P.O.V. is available in a standard size and an array of colours, but can be customised to fit effortlessly into your unique space. Contact us to get more information and pricing.
  • Made in Britain: P.O.V. is made in Yorkshire by our experienced craftsmen and women. Every piece that comes out of our workshop is made with care and attention, to the highest standards, to ensure a lifetime of good service.

- Agamograph art is a form of kinetic art where a piece changes appearance based on the vantage point of the viewer. Most pieces are 3D in nature, and involve a change in imagery and/or colour as the viewer's position changes. Agamographs were first created by the Israeli artist Yaacov Agam.
