Simple optical illusion transforms a bland store facade into a piece of modern street-art.

Drawing the attention of all passersby, one little restaurant in Madrid creatively redesigns its store entrance facade. The installation is titled (fos), which means “light” in the Greek language, and “melted” in Catalan.

Created by Eleni Karpatsi, Susan Piquer and Julio Calvo the (fos) trio, the team introduced an unique installation that paints the illusion of an artificial light beam shining from above. Effectively highlighting the restaurant front door, (fos) was made using yellow tape, pineapples, a lamp, and painted pieces of art and lawn furniture. Whether it is day or night, the visual projection of light will always be lit for business.

(fos) adds a little artistic, modern flair to a sensual Spanish promenade. It would be strange not to stop and step into the “spotlight” at this petite eatery to snap a quick picture.
