In other words, it’s a torture chamber designed to give nightmares to people who hate alarm clocks.
Cathedrals, in themselves, are magnificent sights to behold. Each tile, window, or pillar speaks volumes about its history and how the structure itself came to be.

Elevators have become a common fixture in urban environments. People don’t really acknowledge them anymore; we just pass through them to get somewhere else. Kind of like the Midwest. I’m kidding.

The elevator art was designed by Darrin Umboh, who is a member of the Dutch artist agency Shop Around.
The people who work in the building probably get the urge to ride the elevator up and down just to get a better look at the art.
Check out Shop Around’s website for more pics plus a video of the elevator.
