New Espresso Bar Looks Like It's Flipped on Its Side

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.

Personally, I'd hate to be sitting in one of those clear chairs when a New Yorker in their big winter coat, carrying their life in a huge bag, tries to get past another similarly-dressed person to get to the far side of the room. Too narrow!
