Cool inventions: Stair(book) Case, Pipe/Art Hotel Rooms

21 02 2008

This is a pretty nifty invention to make it easier to get to books/organize your books.  The inventor did this to save space on purchasing a huge bookcase and built his own stair case that can keep books on each level around the edges.

Check out a pic:

And if you’re going for cool designs & new inventions – you can always look to stay in much more economically friendly hotel the next time you need to go somewhere.  It might be a tad cramped but it would help the environment.

Check it out:

Personally for  me – I would much rather stay in a hotel that had a room similar to this:

Can you imagine waking up in the morning to a room like this?  Not to mention that you’re in a hotel and are already disoriented, this would make you go crazy….

Interesting $.02…

Don’t know what’s more fascinating, the unique steps or the number of books this designer has! Cool photos.

Those are the worse designs i’ve ever seen. I’ll start at the top. I hope those shelves hold a few books on how to mend broken bones, and perhaps one or two about legal liability. Aren’t steps supposed to be a set height and depth? Those are begging for a misstep, no handrail either? Boo.

As far as the concrete coffin, i’m sure for it to be somewhat livable, you’d need climate control so i’m not sure how it helps the environment. And where do you go when you have to go? So, how many tons of concrete for one person?
The last one? I think we all agree, it’s just a mess.

I could not agree more. These are all horrible. You left out one thing, what happens when a book is moving due to the constant vibrations of people going up and down and someone slips on the book. This would equal bad lawsuit.

Yeah Phil! why do you have to be so overly critical, people are just trying to come up with cool stuff in this world just for people like you to shoot them down. I think the book case stairs are pretty cool, you would have to be a pretty big klutz to fall down those stairs. 😛

I think these designs are cool. My favorite is the stairs. Although that black & white room was pretty funky.

I like the stairs too – cool use of space – not sure how practical but rocks. Hotel rooms – the crazy one is neat but the tube is a little funky.

Phil you are a jackass. The concrete house is a great idea for people who want an extra bedroom in warmer climate. The concrete actually keeps it somewhat cool, so stop thinking in the box and open your mind to new ideas……jackass

phill is right this guy is an idiot. anyone with common knowledge would know these ideas really don’t benefit society in any way.

The stairs are pretty awesome, thought the ones forming the steps are more of a display thing, I can’t imagine trying to get them out and would probably put flase ones there. The concrete hotel rooms look almost like industrial sized septic tanks, I kind of wonder if they had a defect in the factory and they were able to use them rather then let them get demolished. Escher would love the last one.

These are pretty creative! The staircase is a cool idea and I actually came here on a recommendation to see a photo of the concrete culvert as an idea for a hunting cabin. Its actually a really good idea in areas where there are restrictions and it also will not damage my property. There almost no construction. Just sit it on the ground.

Hate to see your neighbor get pissed at you and roll your concrete room right down the hill!

Yo Phil, I agree with pretty much everyone else about the stair bookcase. Here is another angel. I think they are pretty easy to navigate.

Do you have any books?

23 06 2010
juz10_bat

before you correct me… angle not angel. yes, yes i know.

the stairs are staggered and the side shelves are used as hand rails.
Maybe you are not the Sharpest tool in the Shed.

The concrete culvert is vented and is actually quite cool inside.

DON’T knock it until you’ve tried it.

If you are disoriented when you’re away from home, then maybe you should stay at home and sleep with your Mommy

hey phil, aren’t you a bit well rounded when you had your comments? share us your designs then. a lot would post their suggestions. they would love to see your work. i might go for your design if you post them.
anyway, i love the hotel design. that’s innovation, away from stress.
wish i had lots of books, that’s one hell of a library.
cool room design, but i find it a little sad. please try to change the prints.

The concrete culvert should nice or good if you bury on the ground and make as an emergency hide out in tornadoes prone areas dont you think?

Great blog!

I was just surfing looking for new start-up companies and new products and came across this blog, i like the new hotel idea!

On another note, if anyone has a new or old product they would like for us to take orders for, i would like to speak with you. We are currently looking to test out an inbound order taking call center using virtual agents, and need a company that’s willing to work with us to try it out and iron out the kinks for about 30 day. You will not need to pay a fee, we only ask a percentage of each sale as compensation while we work out our tech side. If interested feel free to give us a call or email.

Thanks,

I love al of the fodder for new ideas, the ideas for conserving evergy, the ideas for re-using what we already have and basically the optomistic point of view. Let the haters hate. Normally they haven’t enything else to do but complain… on the internet… about stupic inconsequential foolishness no one cares about anyway… *grin* Blessings!
