A Fantasy Cave Residence Is Designed to Showcase a Bookcase
View Slideshow

You’ve seen bookcases before but never showcased in a way like this. Design and manufacturing firm Bestcase collaborated with 3d-rendering studio Renderfolk to create a virtual, natural residence, one that was designed for its furnishings instead of vice versa. Creating this fantasy environment allowed the team to showcase the versatility of Bestcase’s Scaffold system and how it’s able to adapt to its surroundings.

In this virtual home, the Cave Residence is situated in a limestone ravine that is accessed by descending below ground via an entrance ramp.

Adjacent to the ramp, a Growing Lab is supported by a massive shelving unit that contains cabinets for tools, under shelf grow lights, and work surfaces for manicuring and pruning. A glass facade allows for sunlight to stream through for proper sun exposure.

In the bathroom, a stainless steel unit frames the outdoor view and provides a visual boundary to the invisible glass wall.

A sliding ladder accompanies a bookcase that reaches for the sky-high ceiling.

Finally, the living room features a bookcase with integrated seating and stainless steel perforated backing.

All of these imaginary environments and furnishings were inspired by the very real, and just as fantastic, Scaffold system and furniture designed by Bestcase.
