Reading Room Installation

CANDIDA TABET ARQUITETURA as Architects

This conceptual installation uses old wooden train tracks as an homage to a time past. It represents marks, wrinkles and infinite stories that are compiled in literary records gathered in the “Acacias”, bookshelf designed by Candida Tabet, where “not even the sky is the limit”. It is then further complemented with the pleasure of the idleness found in simple and comfortable hammocks. The installation is located on a high floor of a building, overlooking the city of São Paulo.

“Acacias” is formed by six rotating shelves vertically stacked supported and spaced out by a structural column this shelf occupies only 50x50 cm of floor space but has the capacity to offer five linear meters of storage space. Thanks to the rotation of each shelf, all four sides of the display can be accessed making it easy to categorize and visualize the books.

At the same time, this composition becomes incredibly aesthetic due to its ordered asymmetry and misaligned planes. Because of its structural autonomy, it can assume an “island” character, eliminating the need for additional supporting structure to be installed.
