At the Tides Restaurant in New York, LTL Architects made a truly striking and totally fascinating ceiling out of bamboo skewers. The bamboo skewers are embedded in the ceiling to form a topographical effect, much like sea grass. The backlit ceiling is also perfect for absorbing noise.
This is an ingenious idea utilizing relatively inexpensive materials that look good and provide a utilitarian purpose.
Implications - Restaurants and other businesses need to have a unique style within their stores in order to draw customers in. By having a unique design that no one has ever seen or that is extremely aesthetically appeasing, businesses are showing that they care about their image.
