Today the Department of Astonishing Optical illusions is going to choose a decorative new office floor. Dubai-based interior design company Imperial Interiors creates these awesome 3D Liquid Floors using layers of durable epoxy polymer over large-scale images to create a sense of depth. So you can make the floor of any room look like a surf-covered beach, a swimming pool, tide pool, a lagoon complete with dolphin visitors, a coral reef, the bottom of a glass-bottom boat or like you’re actually walking on water. You can also make it appear as though there’s a shark swimming beneath your feet as you sit on the toilet.
“…the process involves laying down a layer of self-leveling screed (the material used to make floors even) followed by the desired image. This is then treated with a transparent two-component polymer to give the image depth. A level of protective lacquer is the final step.”
