Select // Maker Issue – Book Launch

After producing the materials mapping artwork for the Select Maker Issue, Select asked me to design the book display booth for their book launch. Since I had already interviewed the product designers I looked into their answers to the questions, the most relevant information was their most used materials. Besides typical materials like wood, concrete and metal, and precious metals like silver and gold, I chose a material that was not too common yet not too expensive; copper. The most important aspect of the book display booth is the display cases for the books, so copper tubes were designed as the platform for the books, and it was also used for the lights above each bookcase. Behind the grey bases was storage space where the new sealed books were stored for sale on the day of the book launch which was on May 1st 2017 at the Contemporary Art Platform in Kuwait.
