The Bodleian Library Kiosks: Where Heritage Meets Innovation


The Bodleian Library, steeped in history dating back to the 15th century, is a treasure trove of knowledge and heritage. In collaboration with Samsung, K4B took on the extraordinary challenge of designing kiosks that harmoniously blend with this historic institution.

Preserving the Past, Embracing the Future:

Commissioned by the library itself, our mission was to create kiosks for public use that pay homage to The Bodleian Library’s rich heritage while embracing modern innovation. It was a task that demanded ingenuity and respect for tradition.

Unique Design Language:

To achieve this, we incorporated many unique design cues and material finishes, ensuring that every aspect of the kiosk suite resonates with the essence of The Bodleian Library. This design was meticulously crafted and signed off by the Library team and Samsung, the sponsor.


The Bodleian Library Kiosks stand as a testament to the seamless integration of heritage and innovation. They are a tribute to the enduring legacy of The Bodleian Library, where the past and the future converge to create an extraordinary experience for its patrons.
