In Plato’s allegory, people were trapped by ignorance inside a cave. In a Bangkok mall, the cave is where knowledge is found.

Thailand’s top stationery and lifestyle chain B2S has unveiled a visually arresting attraction for avid readers with curvy wooden shelves, a mirrored ceiling, and photogenic “book cave” with a vast selection of over 10,000 stationery and book titles in Thai and English at its new Think Space in Central Chidlom shopping mall.

The 1,000sqm space opened just last week and also provides art and craft supplies, IT gadgets and the child-oriented Play & Learn Space. The space in the future will host workshops and panel discussions.

With the evolution of digital media, people’s behavior and attitudes have changed, forcing bookstores and retailers to adapt or die. Many bookstores have closed or scaled down or reoriented their businesses to not rely solely on physical book sales.

B2S recently opened an even more massive 3,000sqm store at Central Eastville, making it one of the largest bookstores in Southeast Asia.

B2S Think Space is located on the sixth floor of Central Chidlom shopping mall, connected to BTS Chit Lom. It opens from 10am through 9pm every day.
