Design Features:

Offered warmth and cosiness through the use of materials and furnishings: wood is the predominant element, present in a great variety of colours and forms. From the hanging lamps to the seats, no two of which are the same, and from the bookshelves to the paintings hanging on the walls.

At 9 3/4 is their hexagon shaped hideaway spaces where one can cosy up and enjoy a good book or one can also make themselves comfortable in one of the patterned quilt chairs and enjoy a nice cup of coffee.

9 3/4 adds to the highly varied, playful, relaxing atmosphere. The varying patterns, wood painted white and left in its natural colour, and the green wall entirely covered with plants clearly express Plasma Nodo’s ideas about sharing, the printed word and human relationships.

“We believe that cities need warm and nice meeting places that welcome us and invite us to learn having fun with our families and friends, sites where people not only buy but go and have a good time.” – Plasma Nodo

Plasma Nodo:

The areas for children in 9 3/4 are small hiding spots or places where they can draw, rest and play while learning and enjoying a good book. For grown-ups there are private reading rooms and also tables for sharing, all surrounded by warm materials, furniture and decoration objects that speak of the joy that gives us a good story, a good book.

We believe in imagination, in magic, in dreams, in memories. We believe that the best ideas and conversations come easily with a good cup of coffee. We know that technology can be the magic wand to enter unimaginable worlds but it will never dethrone the King: the book.
