When it comes to design and architecture, geometry plays a huge role and modern spaces, like this Arthouse Cafe by Joey Ho, are giving the concept a futuristic twist. The Arthouse Cafe centers on the idea of moving triangles, using three-dimensional triangle shapes with openings to create a dynamic environment around the cafe's seating area.

According to Dezeen, the triangular openings feature wooden frames or wood-lined recesses. Hong Kong-based designer Joey Ho created the space to stimulate "non-verbal 'dialogue' with the interior space." The moving triangles change the traditional concept of static space, in which "spatial and body boundaries between the café and users constantly blur," says the designer.

The Arthouse cafe, which sits at the top of a three-story building, also features a minimalistic interior with monochrome furnishings that have triangular shapes that resonate with the triangular wall openings.
