Situated on Nikolaistraße, our first space in this historic city—home to the world’s oldest book fair—was created in collaboration with Munich-based architecture firm and long-time collaborators einszu33.
Influenced by a layered history, the interior references the aesthetics of the prefabricated designs that shaped much of the defunct Deutsche Demokratische Republik. Contemporary elements reflective of Leipzig’s post-reunification development offer pleasing contrasts.
Within the rough concrete façade, the interior features green- and grey-hued walls lined with shelving composed of powder-coated metal and translucent glass tiles, reflective of the industrial uniformity that characterised Leipzig when Germany’s East and West were demarcated. In striking variation, the centrally positioned point-of-sale counter is crafted from oiled Plywood with rounded edges.
