Walking into the 'K11' mall in Hong Kong is almost like walking into a dream. The multi-floored space features beautiful shimmery golden objects all across the interior that were created by design firm 'People's Archtiecture Office.' It's essentially a massive art installation inside of the mall. The concept is called 'Golden Bubbles' in reference to the reflective golden exterior of the inflatable objects. The design references Hong Kong as global financial capital -- likely where the gold color comes into play. The objects are meant to distort and alter the viewpoint of anyone looking at the Golden Bubbles. Mall patrons can even look inside some pieces to see what's on the other side through a kaleidoscopic view.

The interesting design definitely fits in with K11's concept of being the world's first retail museum.
