Hyundai Card's Members-Only Library Design Inspires Wanderlust

The new Hyundai Card Travel Library design by Korean credit card company Hyundai Card will make bibliophiles weak in the knees. The cozy new library in Seoul is only open to Hyundai Card members, but it's stocked with over 15,000 books, an intriguing collection of objects and plenty of places to curl up with a good read.

The space was designed by Japanese design firm Wonderwall and features spiraling staircases, floor-to-ceiling bookshelves, as well as indoor and outdoor seating areas. The space features a cafe, which might make you want to stay there forever. However, with so many of the books dedicated to world architecture, travel and photography to inspire visitors to jet off somewhere new, it's fortunate that there also happens to be a ticket counter so that library guests can make arrangements for an impromptu trip.
