Hans Schabus (exhibited in the Austrian pavilion at the 2005 Venice Biennal) has designed the ultimate utopian pit stop for the body and mind: useful, practical, modern, and inexpensive to build. His onestar stop is something like a bus or a train stop; made out of cheap plywood and 3 meters long in five sections (each section holds the books from one of onestar press’s years in existence) is easy to assemble and disassemble. The books are shelved behind the seats, which may be upholstered in red carpet. The onestar stop can be expanded to accommodate future publications as well. The star in the stop sign is red, of course. Hans’s design is perfect for museums, galleries, and art fairs, although it’s not hard to imagine it in more traditional public spaces. As a long-term collaborator at onestar press, several of Hans’s books are on the onestar stop shelf, along with over a hundred other artists.
