‘Reading Net’ Lets Kids Hang Out With a Book — Literally
Have you ever looked at the vaulted ceiling in your home and thought, "Man, I really wish there was a net up there that I could fill with small children and books." Maybe not. But a Spanish design studio called PLAYOFFICE has created exactly that, and they've dubbed it the Reading Net (as opposed to the iPad Net, or the iPhone Net, which it will inevitably become). PHOTOS: 7 Bizarre (But Beautiful) Bookshelves As explained on Design Boom, the Reading Net can be "tautly attached to the railings of a lofted path, and — as both children and adults climb onto the woven expanse — they can both lounge and learn on the buoyant surface. Kids can bring books, games and homework to the knowledge nest, while parents downstairs can watch from below." Unfortunately, it seems like you'll need a very specific type of space to install one of these Reading Nets, but if you can pull it off, it's sure to be an impressive addition to your home library. Scroll down for a few more shots of the Reading Net, and seriously consider preparing your children for life as well-read trapeze artists.
