..and ceiling and walls to D’Espresso cafe at 317 Madison Ave, famous for having been designed as a library turned sideways!
I was a little disappointed when I first went saw it in person that the designer had used images of books instead of the real thing – nothing would be cooler than actual hard cover books (under glass of course) wrapping around (also, wouldn’t it have been great if there were a few items on the hardwood “floor”?). Still, very cool regardless – there’s also a location at 100 Stanton, and apparently more to come.
