This Espresso Café located on Madison Avenue, in New York City is inspired by the nearby Bryant Park Library, Nema Workshop designed a store that is straightforward in a simple twisted way – take a library and turn it SIDEWAYS.
The booklined shelves become the floor and ceilings and wood floor ends up on the walls meanwhile the pendants protrude sideways from the wall. To achieve the books shelves on the floor, the space is lined with sepia-toned full size photograph of books printed on custom tiles.
This is a really original and highly inspirational interior design, which I have never seen it before. However I have to say, some how it makes me feel dizzy when I stared at those photos. But anyway, this is a really special and easily recognized design.
