London's smallest library at London Design Festival


MINI UK presents the MINI LIVING URBAN CABIN: a communal modular-structure on the Southbank, in partnership with Sam Jacob Studio. MINI launches London's smallest library at London Design Festival. Book lovers will be able to swap well-thumbed favourites for one of the London-themed books at the MINI LIVING - URBAN CABIN, a 15 sqm micro-house, from 20th-24th September.
Architect Sam Jacob pays homage to the British library within the Urban Cabin by installing its very own microlibrary. A response to a decline in the usage of UK libraries, Jacob explains, “London is a city of books before it is a city of architecture. We created this library as an extension to domestic space that contains a certain spirit of the city. Recalling the grand libraries as well as the book-lined studies of domestic life.” The micro-library is filled with a diverse selection of books that describe ways of living in London. A quiet space to enjoy reading, share stories or book recommendations, it creates a perfect contrast to the lively atmosphere of the kitchen.

WOUPS Invisible shelf

Original, WOUPS gives the illusion that your books are levitated against the wall, hanging in the air like magic! Very decorative, this shelf offers a superb mixture of ash wood and perforated lacquered metal. Very practical, the metal part can be mounted on the left or on the right side which makes it possible to use it as a bedside table on both sides of a bed.

The Last Bookstore: Annex flexspace concept

Because the book world of adventure, knowledge and science is not black and white, we have created a photo print of a huge colorful bookcase for the middle part: it covers both the floor, wall and ceiling and is the only color accent in space.
