Alberto Caiola designs an exceptionally sophisticated bookstore interior for Harbook — a shop based in Hangzhou, China. The aesthetic of the space embraces contemporary design through semi-reflective silver walls, arched doorways, sculptural furniture and hits of concrete. It is evident that through the arrangement and the vibe of the space, Alberto Caiola was aiming to appeal to a millennial crowd with city roots. In fact, the classical-meets-abstract arrangement of the space is described to draw inspiration from "imaginary cityscapes."
In tune with the idea of convergence, Harbook's bookstore interior is amplified by the incorporation of other aspects from the lifestyle industry, including "a cafe, and a showroom for Danish contemporary furniture brand Normann Copenhagen."
