LUXURY x BOOKS = “The Jaguar Bookshelf”

Talking of this trend, Brazil’s richest man Eike Batista decorated his living room by parking his Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren in there, whereas a Porsche lover furnished his home with a custom TV stand made from genuine Porsche models. And, the latest in the auto art is done by a Dutch design studio Denieuwegeneratie, as they re-conditioned a retro Jaguar into a bookshelf, carrying books for passengers instead of people.

Jaguar Bookshelf

Created for the Dutch Mountain house project, the Denieuwegeneratie designers gutted off Jaguar’s heavier parts like engine, the rectangular section on the roof in order to create space to accommodate books, and the trunk which has been converted to form a cabinet space. This re-worked vintage Jaguar bookshelf resting against the kitchen wall with length-side up is an auto- art work made for the books buffs and the car connoisseurs alike.
