This is a modern bookcase which have an inviting design for the customer. It created for Paagman book store, located in the entrance of The Hague’s central library and designed by CUBE Architects. It looks transparent because of a large space between the shelves. The shelves consist of open spaces that have function as comfortable seats to read, to walk through or as cash register. This will make the customers fells comfortable to search the books and sit down to look through them.

“The long bookcases filled with colourful books function as separate displays that attract people to the store. Normally books are put on shelves side by side, which only shows the back of a book. In this bookcase at least 50 percent of the books is displayed with the front towards the costumer. In this way it’s more clear and attractive for the visitor. The dismountable system of reversible shelves makes it easy to choose wether to present the books face-to-face or side by side.”
