Really thoughtful optical illusions and puzzles will have you gazing for hours, their twists and turns making your head ache when you really start to think about how much thought and planning went into them.  Wrapping your brain around the Tobias Rehberger installation at the Logomo Café in Turku, Finland could take some time, thankfully that seems to be the point.

The German artist is known for his room-sized installations, and with them, shaking things up a bit.  With over 15 years experience, in a variety of mediums, the established sculptor transformed the interior of a café in a mind-boggling display.  In this second collaboration with Artek, the installation follows a simple palette, including stripes has the main focus.  These lines connect furniture to space and windows to walls, with accents in neon orange.
