The reading dome

Design studio Anagrama has created a lattice-work domed reading space for a new library in Mexico.

3 September 2015

The latest newsletter from designboom describes the installation in the Conarte Library in Monterrey, which sits alongside a bookshop. 

'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.'
