A set of mobile modular bookcases designed for Wide Rainbow, a non-profit contemporary art after school program based in NYC. The design concept was to provide a “home” for books, inspired by New York City skyscrapers and rainbows.

For the 2020/2021 school year, mini libraries were donated to community partners in Queens, Brooklyn, and the Bronx with support from Leroy Street Studio, Books Are Magic, and Herman Miller Cares. Each library includes over 100+ brand new books curated for each neighborhood by educator and librarian Asmaa Walton of the Black Art Library.
