Designed for the new headquarters of the multidisciplinary curatorial platform Kunstverein Milano, situated at the Fabbrica del Vapore in Milan, The Art Bookshop Project is a small, autonomous and flexible structure. Thought both as an office and an exhibition space, it consists of an elevated stage, a large sloping board and several storage units. The project is part of the series of freestanding constructions - halfway between micro-architectures and pieces of furniture - conceived by Vadrot for museums and exhibition venues, such as Studiolo (FRAC Franche-Comté, 2018) and La guérite de Marie (La Tôlerie, 2017).
