Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto has designed 'the Bookchair' for Italian furniture brand 'Alias.'

This unique piece of furniture is meant to double as seating and storage. The chair fits into a cut-out section of the bookshelf where it can be kept when not in use. The back is formed from a single piece of wood and shelves inside the chair ensure a seamless continuation of the shelf when the chair is slotted in place.

Multi-functional furniture pieces like the Bookchair will become increasingly popular with Millennial and Gen Z consumers, as the smaller spaces they live in require pieces that work double duty. As experts of multi-tasking, more Millennial and Gen Z consumers are rejecting single function pieces for ones that are more efficient.
