Between real and imaginary spaces

As part of the modernization of the headquarters of the German Publishers and Booksellers Association in Frankfurt, unit-design has been commissioned to devise an intervention in the building's inner courtyard. In collaboration with Frankfurt-based artist Franz Mon, unit-design has come up with a design that uses lighting elements reminiscent of three-dimensional bookmarks featuring text to create the sense of an imaginary space superimposed over the actual space.














Words are part of the space

Illuminated red elements bearing text adorn the architecture both inside and outside the building.
