Anything but Normal

Oxford Bookstore by Normal Studio

Paris-based Normal Studio’s first foray into interior design, following years of eloquently paring down products, furniture and graphics for manufacturers and galleries, is the sleek, playful Oxford Bookstore in New Delhi.

Housed in a colonial-era building, the 500-square-metre shop replaces doors with inviting archways, plays with the scale of furnishings and features display vignettes that guide circulation.
