Ensemble, bookshop—gallery—studio

Located in the heart of Marseille, between the Vieux-Port and Le Panier, Ensemble is a dynamic space, incorporating Loose Joints studio, a public bookshop and a gallery presenting a carefully selected range of titles by independent art and photography publishers from across the world, alongside Loose Joints’ own books and editions. We imagined the interior and circulation of the 80 m2 space, sourced elements and designed bespokely made pieces of wooden furniture. Made of plywood the modules have been designed to offer some flexiblity to the bookshop. For exemple cubes of different heights presents books to visitors and give rythm to the space, they sit on wheels which allow for a variety of settings and can eventually be set aside to help transform the bookshop into a large gallery space for launch and opennings.
