Where The Funky Books Go To Get Sold!

August 14, 2013

We have wrote a few articles before discussing the decline of the modern bookstore and mentioned that every now and again a project comes out of the blue that stands up and reminds us that there are still plenty of awesome book stores out there who are bucking the trend.

Today’s feature project is one such store. The Prologue Bookstore is based in Singapore and was designed by Ministry of Design and you certainly couldn’t be blamed for mistaking it for being a trendy music and entertainment store as opposed to a bookstore, as you can see from the images below it shares many similar traits.  I think the trendy signage, the black backdrop, the vibrant splashes of color used for the way finding and separation of categories against it and the low level, compact shelving units as well as the lighting are all elements that lift this bookstore into the entertainment store category, very trendy and very awesome! Long live the bookstore 🙂
