SelgasCano creates London bookstore promoting 'a return to physical material things'
Spanish studio SelgasCano has completed a concept bookstore in east London, with handmade wooden bookshelves based on the fictional Library of Babel and a strict no-phone policy. Libreria is intended to inspire a fresh appreciation for books rather than for digital devices, and for handicrafts. This fantasy story features an almost infinite library where hexagonal galleries contain every possible combination of letters. The architects attempted to recreate this sense of boundlessness using irregular shapes and mirrors.
