Mexican design studio Anagrama has completed the interior of a library in Monterrey, Mexico. Commissioned by Conarte, the City’s council for culture and art, the practice were tasked with creating an intimate and comfortable space for both the containment and enjoyment of literature.
The design forms a cocoon, surrounding occupants with a latticed wall-mounted bookshelf. In addition to storing various publications, the timber unit has been configured to simulate the inside of a dome. The stands incorporate a graduated finish that attributes depth, while the illuminated half circle found in the back wall forms the vanishing point of the structure, creating a balance between color and perspective.
