I have always delighted in the monumentality of the past architecture and simplicity of the new, their grace and lightness. So it was decided to find the main and unchanging element in architecture and apply it in design. Projecting, I represented a bright interior, where you could feel the elegance and ease. But the final form of the model and meaningfulness of its content I received during a trip to sunny Italy, with her rich architectural past and greatness. So the arch construction, which was found in every monumental construction and building, was used in the new collection.

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.

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.
