The D'espresso Coffee Shop Looks Like a Library Flipped on its Side

The next time I visit New York, I definitely have to stop over at the D'Espresso coffee shop. Not only do I love my coffee, I also love libraries, even if they are flipped over onto their side.

Designed by Anurag Nema and his 'nemaworkshop' team, the D'Espresso coffee shop does not actually feature real shelves and books. Instead, it's a design gimmick made up of strategically placed tiles on the walls and floor. A clever concept, it'll make anyone feel like they've just stepped into Wonderland.
