A Cocoon in a Library – Design You Trust

A Cocoon in a Library


The city council of Monterrey, Mexico, has commissioned designers from the Anagrama studio designer the adaptation of space in the local library reading room. So architects created a great cozy cocoon from the shelves and books and everyone can sit there comfortably and read a book they want.


“Our mission was to create a space that gives value to the experience of reading. A design-intelligent space was created for the bookshop and library granting value to the reading experience.”


“Our design proposal focuses on creating a space that wraps the reader in. The bookshelves attend more that just their basic function and were designed to simulate a dome that plays with the visual perspective.”


“The stands incorporate a color gradient finish that attributes depth. The illuminated half circle found in the back wall simulates the vanishing point of the structure, creating a perfect balance between color and perspective.”
