These amazing combative pieces of furniture are made by Daniel Loves Objects, an industrial designer based in Singapore. The unusual bookshelves are called ‘Of Wars & Wits & Powers,’ and features little golden soldiers holding structures up and shooting out into the living room.

Rather hostile or trigger-happy furniture, one could say, but these pieces actually represent a comment on the recent political climate. ‘Of War & Wits & Powers’ specifically speaks to the phenomenon that foreign countries have grown hostile when asked to halt their missile testing.

In this way, the bookshelves, with their golden army situated underneath to protect and uphold their beliefs and important plans, represent a piece of present military commentary.
