Book lovers, get ready to drool. The book shop inside the Conarte Library in Monterrey, Mexico is a stunning architectural tribute to the beauty of books. The reading area features rhomboid shelves made of pinewood; as they recede into the back of the room they twist and bend to create a mesmerizing optical illusion.
Design firm Anagrama designed the unique structure with the intention of creating an illusion of disconnection with the outside world. That contributes to a peaceful environment in which readers can just let go, forget about daily life, and melt into a great book.
