Adytum is a new Australian wellness brand informed and guided by a philosophical underpinning; the brand exists to encourage and cultivate practices of meaningful ritual.

The brand has launched a semi-permanent library and exhibition space in Canberra’s Lonsdale Street. Paying tribute to the repose and intellectual nourishment one receives from the written word, the Adytum Library stocks a collection of design, art, craft, urbanism, landscape and architecture titles.

The serenely subdued interior was conceived to pay homage to the reverence of great libraries. The space consists of a large central island; whose surfaces and softened edges have been rendered in a natural plaster and finished in beeswax. The designers were tasked with executing a fitout with a minimal environmental footprint. Their response included comprising the island’s structure of reclaimed MDF; and finishing the unit in natural plaster and wax. Display elements include stone offcuts sourced from local stonemasons and industrial display plinths were made using construction site waste. The multi-sensory library experience includes a custom herbal tea blend offering and the subtle fragrance of Adytum’s own incense wafts throughout. The experience Pattern have created is refined, minimal, verging on monastic; a taste of what is to come in the brand’s future salon.

The Adytum Library is also home to works by photographer Traianos Pakioufakis and ceramicist Alana Wilson (represented by ReadingRoom).
