Mirror-filled Chinese bookstore seems infinite

XL-Muse designed this new bookstore in Hangzhou's Star Avenue commercial center, using mirrors and clever perspective to make its many rooms seem infinite and mind-meltingly weird.

The design includes a children's room where the bookshelves look like fair-rides, a peaceful reading room, and stepped shelves that double as benches, with cushions and lamps, as well as a "forest of mirrors" made of mirrored pillars.
