When closed, this bike looks like the random food-selling street carts you can see everywhere in China. However, when the ladybug opens its wings, something magical happens: it’s a tiny library!

Made of abandonned bikes and discarded metal car sheets, this “library-bike” can go anywhere to bring joy to kids by carrying children books. Just like a regular library, this bike also allows for kids to stay there and enjoy their book on the spot, thanks to a sitting space available.

This project was thought and built by LUO Studio, a design agency from Beijing in China.
