It would be unfair to call this space simply a bookstore, given its well-curated array of other designer offerings. Scandinavian minimalism is celebrated with ceramic and glass Marimekko and Iittala kitchen and housewares sitting alongside mugs, dishware and Design Letters by Arne Jacobsen. Handcrafted maple block sets by Fidoodle and Areaware’s stacking pine Blockitecture pieces add whimsy to its shelves. Of course, design and architecture books, on topics like advertising, graphic design, urbanism, illustration and fashion, abound.
