Bibliothèque Design is a strong design consultancy based in London, England, with an international list of clients and projects. Bibliothèque was founded in 2003 by directors Tim Beard, Jonathon Jeffrey, and Mason Wells. The consultancy “produce[s] effective and captivating design solutions that are underpinned by conceptual thinking, meticulous attention to detail and innovative production.” Wallpaper* Magazine interviewed Bibliothèque in 2009. During that Q&A the magazine asked, “Dieter Rams has 10 Principles of good design – what is Bibliothèque’s one principle of good design?” Bibliothèque’s response is worth noting.
“Do good work. For us the quality of the work coming out of our studio is THE most important thing, above all else. You are only as good as your last job. Sometimes its easy to get sidetracked by commercial requirements, but for us the number one principle is absolute commitment to work of the highest quality. We try not to stray from that.”
The staff of designers at Bibliothèque are highly versatile. The team is equally adept working on a new logo and toolkit for the Livestrong campaign, or an identity for a boutique hair-salon. This versatility is rooted in a deep knowledge and appreciation of design. The team’s love for design is perhaps most evident in their work for exhibitions and environments, where their knowledge is literally on display. Our favorite is the survey of Le Corbusier at Barbican, which features monolithic walls and a picturesque cut through; nods to Le Corbusier himself.
