We love it when big ideas come to life and the Kid’s Republic Bookstore in Beijing is an example of such a phenomenon!

KR’s designers (Japanese architects Sako) have gone hell for leather to create a bookstore that you just won’t want to leave! They have raided the Pantone Swatch Book to create a meandering rainbow that captures the imagination.

Kids and adults can curl up in to the appropriate sized nook with a book, sit in their wooden honeycomb tunnel or wander through the rainbow cave. Count me in!
