I was sitting in this coffee shop for at least an hour before I noticed the wall of assorted coffee lids. The architects fashioned the wall by making impressions of disposable coffee cup lids in plaster. The detail is great and it is a great effect in the space. More details are available on the Lewis.Tsurumaki.Lewis site (navigate to projects – > ini ani).
It is also worth mentioning that the wall of lids was not the only good think about ini ani, among other fine qualities, they also have free wi-fi!
