Check out images of cool libraries which we brought together on our pinterest board COOL LIBRARIES.
One of the libraries featured on our pinterest board is the new Stuttgart Public Library in Southern Germany.
How does this innovative city (known as the "cradle of the automobile") envision a public library in the 21st century? Korean architect Eun Young Yi was chosen to deliver a stunning, yet refreshingly simple design! No doubt, Steve Jobs would have approved of it! Books and people are the focus throughout, delivering a multitude of colors in a mostly white interior, similiar to the design of the new central Amsterdam Public Library which is the largest public library in Europe. In the Stuttgart Public Library there is a Café with a very appealing and smartly chosen name. It is called Café LesBar which means Reading Bar, but "lesbar" in German means also readable! Coincidentally, we recently added the book "Brilliant: White in Design" by Linda O'Keeffe to our collection.
Hello Booklovers: We have added a new title BOOKSHELF to our collection of design books. Here are some of our newer titles on living with books (click on the images for online catalog link):
