PHILIPPE STARCK'S MEDIA LIBRARY KIT FOR LIBRARIES WITHOUT BORDERS IN THE SPOTLIGHT
Visitors will be able to discover the Ideas Box, a mobile media library in kit form, designed by Philippe Starck for Bibliothèques Sans Frontières in 2014. With its books, games, computers, tablets, creative materials and cinema, the Ideas Box can be deployed in 20 minutes in the most difficult contexts to create a cultural and educational space for up to 50 people. In situations of emergency, crisis and conflict - such as the current situation on the borders of Ukraine - the Ideas Box enables children and adults to rebuild, learn and (re)connect.
