One’s reading interest is unlikely to be limited to a specific type of book. Instead, it would grow from one point of interest to several related fields. Also, when people do their reading, they probably have something at their hands. It might be snacks or stationery. Therefore, the reading experience Call me MOSAIC emphasizes is always conducted in a multi-dimensional scenario.

As the studies on reading behaviour, the C-shaped shelves are devised as the module. Shelves of varied length stacking in space generate a complex and bursting book wall just like the multi-dimensional space illustrates in scenes of Interstellar. People can experience horizontal reading when receiving information from different directions at the same time.

The design of bookshelves is inspired by the live commenting which gains phenomenon success in video social media. The C-shaped units boost from the back wall, overhanging in the space and coloured vivid amaranth. Standing in between these shelves, customers can find books they are interested in and other products highly related.
