Designed by internationally acclaimed eco conscious artist and designer Michael Jantzen, the Literaryum was originally conceptualized as a special inspirational functional art space for reading or writing. Ideal for use in your backyard or public spaces, the Literaryum’s structure is an 8-feet cube made of steel and aluminum. The cube can be made larger or can be clustered together in multiples to form larger spaces. Five sides of the cube have aluminum panels, which can be perforated with inspirational text chosen by the owner of the Literaryum.
The letters of the custom text are cut out of the aluminum sheets that clad the surface of the cube, leaving a lacy semi transparent screen. These letters can be read from inside and are reversed from the outside. The aluminum panels hinge open or close over four eight-foot sliding glass doors and the glass ceiling, so that the text can be seen in every direction except through the floor. The Literaryum accessories include solar powered heating and cooling, interior privacy shades, custom night lighting fixtures and a selection of custom furniture.
Michael Jantzen‘s whole idea behind the Literaryum was to create a magical place made of inspired words, which surround the occupants in their own quest for creative inspiration.
Thanks, Michael Jantzen
