The interior architecture attempts to give the multitude of books a unifying and calming milieu. Inspired by Japanese origami, the store is given a single colour and surface texture, allowing for the visual effect of one surface being folded into walls, ceiling and floor. All niches and shelves also appear to be folded into the same origami piece. The bookshop is located within the BI-University building (by architect N.Torp).
