Matali Crasset : Bibliothèque de plage

On the beach of Romantiquette in Istres, the designer Matali Crasset created this concept of beach library, a metal structure surrounded by three colored alcoves to protect people from the sun.

Offering a choice of 300 titles, this mobile library is divided into two zones, the central library area proper, which hosts the shelves of books, and all around, three satellites that provide shaded areas for vacationers. A creation in line with the usual beach kiosks, but that brings culture to the sea edge.
