Malmö City Library: Kanini

Redesigning the children’s department at Malmö City Library for and with visitors and personell

Kanini is the re-designed department for young children (age 0 to 8) at Malmö city library.

The definition of what a library could be and do is changing rapidly. The new department uses new methods and technologies to promote and facilitate children’ reading, learning, and creativity.

Unsworn Industries has worked in close collaboration with the team from Malmö City Library and architects Testbed studio to create an environment, design digital solutions, and develop new ways of working in order to meet the diverse and changing needs of the visiting children while also being a functial and inspiring workplace for the staff.

The department opened in September 2016! Check out some photos here.
