McNally Jackson Books by Front Studio

From Front Studio, a redesign of the McNally Jackson Books cafe. "Because we are all avid readers and great lovers of books, our collaborations took on an amazing degree of synchronicity. We thus imagined a space where every moment evokes some visceral connection with books and with reading."

"A scattering of books hangs precipitously from the ceiling, as if a pile of books had been thrown into the sky and frozen."

"The curved wall surrounding the seating area is covered in a wallpaper made entirely of open spine books, the texture of the print adds a rippling affect of restless pages."

"Running along the wall is a series of folding single tables, carefully crafted to resemble a folded book when closed. The new menu is made of food related quotes lit by 4 light fixtures, each dedicated to the many editions of a singular book."
