The Hoxton Southwark, a new luxury hotel located in London’s trendy Southbank, were looking for intelligent titles for their ‘Working From_’ floors – flexible workspaces for entrepreneurs and side hustlers. Our brief from the designers at Ennismore was to produce a collection that could be used as professional resources. As well as providing books to inspire working professionals, we also needed to keep the aesthetic and values of The Hoxton brand in mind.
Ultimate Library were asked to provide a large selection of titles for these workspaces, which spanned five floors. We curated titles that could be used as professional resources and also focused on development, leadership and learning. To appeal to the clientele, we avoided overly academic or weighty numbers and included some books with a sense of fun.
In addition, we included books that focused on wellness, fashion, interiors, pop-culture, art, photography, design, travel and film to appeal to the needs and interests of the clientele. To add colour and texture we provided decorative, titles using a combination of cloth jacketed books as well as retro books to reflect the style of the space.
