I love this design. It is minimalistic and structured which is two things i have been trying to achieve with my publication. I have been recreating elements of stepping in my designs, and wish to reflect this in my contents page too. It is great to see the underlying structure of this layout to help me do this.
Japanese design studio A.P.Works playfully mimics the imagery of Albert Einstein's space-time fabric theory with this mind-bending placemat. By warping the grid pattern, the trick mat creates the illusion that the plate and silverware are weighing down the placemat's seemingly elastic surface, in the same way that planets and stars distort the plane of space-time.
