Toronto, Canada, 2012-01-12 -

The Bookseat, a simple bookcase that playfully curves and becomes a seat, is a creative design responding to the advent of multifunctional spaces in today’s urban living. The Bookseat is locally sourced and hand-crafted within 100 miles of Fishtnk’s studio in Parkdale, Toronto.


The Standard Bookseat is crafted with Canadian Maple with natural finish. We have released a limited white-washed edition for the Cutler and Gross of London, and a special edition with American Walnut. The Bookseat is available with a felt cushion in customizable colors and a limited edition leather. The current production of the Bookseat is limited to 100 pieces, uniquely numbered and tagged based on the order of production.
