Milk Tea + Pearl, Shoreditch Boxpark London – YAO

“a long, narrow, tunnel-like cargo container in which the shop resides. The studio reversed such strategy by using geometric lines and taking advantages of false perspectives to make the space appear shallower and wider. The front half is an abstract, anamorphic ‘beach hut’ bounded by pastel blue timber slats and white timber decking, illuminated by carnival lights reminiscent of English pleasure piers; the rear half is a white box that is the tea bar, adorned with anamorphic yellow dots of various scales and a ‘beach towel’ which doubles as the shop menu. The two spaces overlap and when viewed from a centred position outside, the optical illusion trick is revealed.”- yao
