Library-Inspired Tablet Pop-Ups

reMarkable's A Better Place to Think Pop-Up Inspires Calm & Focus

— May 21, 2021 — Art & Design
reMarkable, the maker of next-generation paper tablets, opened a pop-up store in Oslo and the interior of A Better Place to Think by architecture firm Snøhetta was designed to remind of libraries. The reMarkable pop-up store incorporates cozy elements like divided timber desks, custom oak furniture, leather banquets and domed reading lamps that emit warm light.

The space evokes a sense of contemplation and concentration, which makes the pop-up particularly inviting. As Snøhetta founder Kjetil Trædal Thorsen told Dezeen, In today's fast-paced and digitalised society, finding places for focused thinking can be a challenge."

A Better Place to Think is a pop-up space that conveys the qualities of the brand's tablet spatially, through details big and small, such as the matte finishes that reference the real feeling of using the paper-like digital tablet product.
Trend Themes
1. Library-inspired Pop-ups - Creating calm and focused environments in pop-up stores or temporary spaces by using design references from libraries.
2. Matte-finish Products - Incorporating matte finishes in digital products to reference the real feeling of using paper, creating a more tactile and natural experience.
3. Cozy Workspace Design - Designing workspaces with warm lighting, comfortable seating, and natural materials to create a more inviting and productive environment.
Industry Implications
1. Consumer Electronics - There is a need for consumer electronics brands to create more inviting and calming environments, particularly in pop-up stores, which could lead to innovative retail experiences.
2. Interior Design - Interior designers can explore incorporating library-inspired design elements into their projects, particularly for workspaces and pop-up stores, which could create a more productive and calm environment.
3. Architectural Design - Architects can explore designing spaces that promote focused thinking, incorporating warm lighting and comfortable seating to create an atmosphere of calm and productivity.
