    yes, I love it. As a bookseller dealing with books by the pallet load, I often ponder how to make best use of those we can’t find a home for.

    Looked amazing at first, but the pattern repeats too often and is kinda bumming me out.

    I like to think of this as Inceptionist design.

    That’s pretty cool. I had to look at the picture for a good 10 seconds before it flipped for me.
    I’d love to see one that had a floor that looked like your were thousands of feet up above the city you were in. There’d have to be some affect at the front door that would force you to overcome the perception and step out into the ether…like a few feet of hard wood floor that suddenly ends.

    Sort of like this bathroom, which I think is a photoshop affect.

      The bridge that connects the parking garage and main terminal at the Sacramento airport has a carpet that is kind of like that. The artist’s site with pics!

    This certainly trumps my idea for a coffee shop that looks like a library and is one.

    Nice, but let’s hope it’s not *as* authentic as the NYC library–I’m talking overlit, not air conditioned, with a prevailing aroma that is no way connected to a burr grinder.

    Then again, it did offer free Wi-Fi.

    The pixels, I can tell from some of them.

    I’ll take an Americano with room for vertigo, thanks!

    Pretty trippy.

    Reminds me a bit of that scene from Inception….

    Trying a bit too hard to be quirky for my taste. Besides, drinking coffee with your nose to the dirty carpet… Eew!

    So good it’s not a bar. Then again, also bad for a coffee on the morning after being to too many bars.

    Great coffee, been there, alas the overall effect is barf-inducing when seen IRL.

    I totally agree. The picture itself is rather barf-inducing. I couldn’t imagine sitting in the actual environment to consume food without feeling the effects of vertigo. Who thought this would be a good idea?

    That is Genius. The retro chairs add a nice touch too.
