Ruetemple’s outdoor book spaces

ruetemple gazebo 3

Here are some Russian-made products worthy of importing. Ruetemple is an amazing architectural studio working out of Moscow. Their three book-related projects are each beautifully designed, incredibly functional and fit perfectly in an outdoor environment. They have at times, been placed in parks around Moscow.

The Gazebo

Features a small table for lunch or tea, and easy-to-clean slatted wooden floors.
