(15 October 2016) Architect Masayoshi Nakanishi has created a library with curving seating areas, which is aimed exclusively at women in Japan.
The MASA Architects founder was tasked with creating a space that would inspire local women in Fukui – a city where, more so than anywhere else in Japan, most married women have full-time jobs.
The client, Fukui Bank, wanted to do something to support these women in their efforts to juggle employment, married life and raising a family.
Nakanishi’s response was to design a space that centres around a big, unusually shaped table that incorporates a variety of seating areas.
Dezeen has the profusely illustrated story.
