‘La Bibliothèque Imaginaire’

1992

To mark the reopening of the enlarged Museum of Decorative Arts (Museum voor Sierkunst) in Ghent, thereafter known as the Design Museum Ghent, we launched the ‘Sier-Cuit’ (circuit) initiative in conjunction with nine design shops and galleries.

We showed ‘La Bibliothèque Imaginaire Designed for Books on Design’: an evocation of an imaginary library where a selection of the finest books about design were presented in bookcases by (among others) Aldo Rossi, Alessandro Mendini and Charlotte Perriand (in cooperation with Surplus, Ghent).

The walls were lined with enlarged reproductions taken from books of magnificent old libraries in villas, castles and apartments, from Moscow to Manhattan.
