Inspired by the nearby New York City Public Library in Bryant Park, design of the D’Espresso Café, located in NYC’s midtown neighborhood, is significantly unconventional. Although small in size, it is highly unlikely that anyone would ever forget their visit to this posh café because of its most unusual and creative interior. Departing from the typical, vertically positioned books and horizontally aligned bookshelves occupying wall space, D’Espresso’s interior realized by Nema Workshop, defies gravity through the use of sepia -toned full size photograph of books printed on custom tiles. The tiles are positioned along the floor, wall and ceiling in a way so that the books are horizontal and the shelves are vertical, needless to say that only a small portion is actually on the wall which is completely irregular and thus unexpected. The book tiles combined with oddly shaped soft lighting and a dark brown herringbone feature wall (which would typically be a floor) creates a bold impression and becomes an attention grabbing focal point to the passing-by tourists and trendy New-Yorkers.
