ncarrot2: The architects at Nemo Workshop designed this new espresso bar in New York City called D’espresso. The interior looks like the room has been tilted on its side: The “books” are actually tiles printed with sepia-toned photos of bookshelves at a local travel bookstore that ring the room, including the floor, walls and ceiling. In addition to painting unusual surfaces with intriguing patterns — whoa, you’re standing on books! — it gives an Alice in Wonderland-esque sense that the room has been suddenly upended.
