Le Parva, Grande Bibliothèque

Grande Bibliothèque de Montréal
Montréal, Québec

Café des Lettres in Montreal’s Grand Bibliothèque has an obvious literary bent. Above the counter of this concession for the 33,000 square-meter public institution, different models of the Laurent Collection help define this service area where library patrons come to refuel with caffeine and carbs. While the lights’ metal structures come in different shapes, the blown-glass opaline globes provide a certain unity. They all benefit from hanging in a space with extremely high ceilings, which accentuates their elegant proportions. banq.qc.ca
