St. Mark’s Bookshop in Manhattan Features a Clever Bookcase That Flows Around the Edge of the Store

Flowing Bookcase at St. Mark's Bookshop

St. Mark’s Bookshop, an independent bookstore in New York City’s East Village, recently moved into a new retail location that features a dramatic bookcase that flows around nearly the entire perimeter of the space. New York City-based Clouds Architecture Office created the unusual bookcase design to keep the center of the store uncluttered, allowing the space to double as an event venue.
