Stadtbibliothek Stuttgart

DE – Stuttgart,

The new city library in Stuttgart is one of the largest public libraries in the world and with the new construction is a milestone in the cultural landscape and in the accessibility of knowledge and education as a social element in Stuttgart. Totems designed and realised the entire furnishings of the house by Korean architect Eun Young Yi. The complex challenge and the objective were life among the media, not simply the storage of media.

The design of the furnishings extends the clear, geometric structures of the building’s outer architecture to the interior. Upholstered areas are based on the CI colour blue, which is also the colour of the upholstered island SIDE COMFORT.
