This book shop was created for the Urban Outfitters store in Omaha, NE. Four floor fixtures (A table, two shelves, and a storage bench) rest on the floor, while framework versions of each fixture hang directly above, creating a “ghost” version of the bookshop in the ceiling. The upside-down room effect.
The fixtures were built from 3/4” birch plywood with 1/4” oak plywood accents. They each sit on an MDF floor panel. The ceiling pieces were built from dimensional pine, 1/4” oak plywood, wood dowels, and nylon string. They are carefully weighted and balanced so they would sway gently when the heating or air-conditioning would kick on.
