Reading Nooks at the Mall
In Darmstadt, Germany there is a shopping mall called Loop5. It uses an aerospace motif in its decoration and design. What I loved most about it were these reading nook areas located on every floor. They are shaped like the interior of a jet and there are airline seats in each one. People sat and read in every one of them I saw in the mall, which I found ironic. When you're on a jet, you can't wait to get out of the seats. But at this mall, people deliberately go sit in them.
