Situated in a historic building on the iconic banks of Ningbo’s Yongjiang River, Nordic Books is a newly conceived experiential retail destination, dedicated to showcasing Nordic design, publications, and lifestyle.

In conceptualising the four-story premise, Yatofu Creatives sought to evoke the soft contemporary feel of Nordic design, while preserving traces of the building’s historical past. This honest approach expands upon the foundation of the project’s core purpose: to promote the authentic values behind Nordic lifestyle and to showcase an expanded understanding to an international audience.


This project has been longlisted in the large retail interior category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
