The Swollen Wall by Paul Coudamy

The Swollen Wall architecture design

Another great furniture and architecture design is done by French designer Paul Coudamy. This architect and designer has completed the Swollen Wall, a 17m long bookshelf with shperical outgrowths, in an apartment in Paris. The main goal of creating this swollen wall is the owner wanting a place for book and movie he have, the owner is a movie and book collector and he loves his collection so much and wanting to live along with and enjoy his books and films collection in his recently acquired haussmanian apartment. The bookshelf which articulates the different living spaces of the habitation is inserted along the two main load-bearing walls. It goes above walls, through the bedroom’s dressing and can either create a hall area in the entrance, or spread on the corner walls of the office room which accommodates a guest bedding under the elevated desk platform. From floor to top, the shelf is directed by a 20×20cm squared grid. This grid is defined by the pocket book format and is flexible enough to enlarge for bigger formats or objects. You can therefore find room for speakers, umbrellas, A4 files, vases, etc. Closed storage blocks are extruded from these cells offering a mini bar, a dressing, devices storage and so on. via
