Basheer Design Books Got an eye for design?

[05/05/09] 

Unless you’ve got the drawing power of CNN’s Larry King, it’s unlikely you’re ever going to get the likes of I.M. Pei or Philippe Starck over for dinner. So how will you ever find out how they got their inspiration for the Bank of China Tower and the Juicy Salif lemon squeezer?

Easy, just make a visit to Basheer Design Books, a bookstore that specializes in all things design, from architecture, interiors and fashion to advertising, photography and animation. Here, you’ll find probably the largest collection of design magazines, including “Hinge”, “Frame”, “DHD” and “Whitewall”. Whether you prefer to sit on the windowsill or one of the cushioned seats between the shelves, lose yourself in the many atlases that are available, such as "Hip Dining" and the more dense "Phaidon Atlas of Contemporary World Architecture". There are also unique local books, namely Simon Go's "Hong Kong Apothecary: A Visual History of Chinese Medicine Packaging" and Kenneth Lo's "Nathan Road" (a panoramic photo collage of the entire thoroughfare). And before you go, you might just catch a glimpse of a graffiti artist secretly tagging the stairwell walls. How cool is that?

Now you’re talking talkitecture!
