LUTYENS & RUBINSTEIN

The design for this busy bookshop and literary agency was designed to work hard.

Joinery cubes on castors allow for various rearrangements of the counter, and enable the space to be opened up to host film screenings or book signings.

The modular shelving give the owners the choice to display books in either a spine-out or face-out arrangement. The shelving also conforms on two datum levels: a low level shelf doubles up as seating or a display surface, and a high level steel rail supports the globe lighting and hanging signs.
