The more high-tech we get, the more that which is low-tech seems to gain status, or at the very least, our interest. Take books. They have long been used in home interior design, but they are finding their way into commercial and event design.
In the lobby of The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas, one of the rotating projections on the columns is a strikingly visual, contempoarary library. And last year, that same back-lighted library projection look found its way into several Hollywood events.
And then there is always the real thing as used by these two interior designers and highlighted in the Spring issue of Angeleno Interiors…
The Wellesbourne in Los Angeles. Owner and co-designer Sophie Huterstein told Angeleno, “I thought the only thing sillier than putting real books in a bar would be putting fake ones there.” She combed flea markets to find vintage titles.
And at MyStudio, contemporary art books in a library design created by Gulla Jonsdottir are also real and meant to be read.
