"Bibliothèque Mobile" is a black rubber reading cubicle designed to display books of small book publishers . It accommodates two people and is scaled as a hybrid between a small room and a large piece of furniture. It is large enough to offer privacy, yet small enough not to impose on the surrounding space. It is built on wheels to be moved and assembled at different locations. The booth is in an H formation with two walls connected by a third to anonymously frame the hands and reading material of the two occupants. The Project has been traveling throughout France since 1997 and has played host to various conferences.
