Mirrored ceilings have turned a Chinese bookstore into fabulous labyrinths
Just one detail can radically transform the interior, and Chinese architects know about it. The Zhongshuge bookstore chain has been transformed thanks to mirrored ceilings. Staircases and shelves are displayed in them, creating a sense of a different reality. Ordinary bookstores have turned into fabulous enchanted labyrinths in the Escher style, from which you do not want to leave.
See what amazing bookstore designs are created by Shanghai architects.The Zhongshuge bookstore chain ordered interior decoration in its branches from the Shanghai architectural firm X+Living and did not lose: the result was amazing.Amazing combinations of illusion and reality amaze even the most sophisticated lovers of art and reading.
Each branch of the Chinese book chain has a uniquely organized space with mirrored ceilings that display visitors, books on shelves and stairs. It seems that all this is happening not in the store, but in a drawing by Mauritz Escher.
In the offices located in Yangzhou, mirrors are placed not only on the ceilings, but also on the floor. These decorative elements create mirages — displays of urban canals, rivers and lakes.
A clever design can turn even the most ordinary room into a real masterpiece. Bookstores have become a world of illusion and reality thanks to mirror elements.
I don't want to leave such maze shops - I'm drawn to enjoy the fabulous atmosphere while reading my favorite book.
