Hong Kong – Designer Joey Ho has created a restaurant that transports diners from the busy streets of Hong Kong into the topsy-turvy world of an M C Escher drawing.
In this famously cramped city, Ho aimed to give the one-room eatery an expansive feel, embellishing the walls and ceiling with mirrors, false windows and staircases to nowhere.
