117, 'Most beautiful swiss books' exhibition

Installation for the annual exhibition of The Most Beautiful Swiss Books in London. The competition was established to promote and reward the finest book design in Switzerland, at the behest of the famous typographer and designer Jan Tschochold in 1943.

Three sheets of stainless steel form an installation in the room and hold the books for display. A bright LED light is hung in the centre of the room - the chandelier attracts the visitors like moths to a lamp.
