Livre Échange Tree Library - Saint-Étienne, France
Via Design TAXI:
‘Livre Échange’ or ‘Book Exchange’ is a ‘free bookshop’ that lets passers-by exchange books. Unveiled for the International Design Biennial 2013 in Saint-Étienne, France, by designer Didier Muller—the installation consists of huts suspended from trees that contain a book each.
Passers-by are encouraged to take the book within the hut, and deposit a book they have.
