Wondering what to do with your vintage Jaguar? Neither are we, but if we did have a vintage Jaguar to get rid of I doubt we would have come up with the application dreamed up by Dutch design studio, denieuwegeneratie.
Instead of selling it for scrap metal, they took a different approach, converting the old Jag into a bookshelf! We’re likely to pronounce the studio’s name correctly before we guess why a bookshelf of all things was decided upon, but I suppose it’s more functional than crunching it into a metal cube or sticking it in a garage somewhere. The images posted show it perched upright on the rear bumper so I can only hope it’s secured well enough that you don’t have to worry about falling victim to a vehicle fatality while reaching for part of your magazine collection.
The shelf resides in a structure known as “Dutch Mountain” – a house built into the side of a hill with a design as striking as the car-bookshelf it houses. You can read more about the Jaguar bookshelf on the original post here. So the next time you’re thinking of throwing away an old car, try parking it in your kitchen. It could be the perfect spice rack you’ve been looking for.
