Tokyo Baby Cafe by Nendo

This project is seriously interesting...  it's about making a space based on how kids perceive grown up furniture and dimensions in general. Making the cafe for adults like they were still kids.

Its a project from Nendo, they have completed this cafe for parents and their children in Aoyama, Tokio. Giving some furniture the ability to become a playground for the kids.

"Images of animals are hidden from parents’ eyes on the underside of the tables while shelves house books and toys."

In order to distort the space they have used floorboards that change in scale across the room. Which is a clever way to distort perception that I never had thought of.
