ARKET hosts pop-up tour of Apartamento Bookshop

Nordic design and lifestyle brand ARKET is teaming up with friends at the Barcelona-based publishing house Apartamento to present the next iteration of its pop-up bookshop. Premiering in Berlin at the opening of the new ARKET store in Mitte on 15 March, the bookshop features a selection of literature on food, art, and everyday aesthetics curated  by the Apartamento team. The pop-up shop will be available in the ARKET Mitte Berlin store until mid-April, followed by a second stop in Stockholm later this spring, and in Paris and Barcelona during autumn 2024. 

After launching in April 2023 with a takeover of the Commerce Bookshop in Milan during last year’s Milan Design Week, the Apartamento Bookshop has also appeared with a pop-up store at the Apartamento office in Berlin, and at events in New York and Paris.

‘The Apartamento Bookshop is a place where our readers and those new to the publishing house can become immersed in our universe. It's been great to see ARKET embrace the pop-up nature of the Apartamento Bookshop. After it first appeared last year, they've helped us define its next iteration, and together we've selected some of our most special titles that will go on an exciting European tour throughout 2024,’ says Robbie Whitehead, Apartamento Publishing’s Editorial Director. 

The ARKET and Apartamento Bookshop will showcase 14 titles from the Apartamento catalogue, including recipe collections from Copenhagen chef Frederik Bille Brahe and the memoirs of winemaker Anders Frederik Steen, Dominique Nabokov's interior photography works documenting the living rooms of Paris and Berlin society, photographic explorations of the homes of Salvador Dalí and Xavier Corberó, monographs on artist Nicola L and designer Miguel Milá, and more. Exclusively available in-store, each purchase with the ARKET and Apartamento Bookshop comes with a complimentary limited-edition tote bag. 

ARKET and Apartamento joined for their first collaboration five years ago, presenting a  co-designed T-shirt collection with illustrations by artist Martin Fengel.
