Today we’d like to share an experimental 3D layout with you. The idea is to show some information about a gallery’s exhibition in an interesting way. Each artist has a “room” in the gallery which shows the schedule for the exhibition. When clicking on one of the navigation buttons, we move away from the current room and proceed to the next (or previous) one with an animation.

For this experiment we are using the animation library anime.js by Julian Garnier and imagesLoaded by David DeSandro.

Attention: Highly experimental! Please view with a modern browser that supports CSS 3D Transforms and CSS Flexbox.

Here are some screenshots of the different views of the layout.

The initial view is the first room of the gallery:

When navigating, we move to the next/previous room:

When clicking on the menu icon in the top right corner, we rotate the whole room and get a view from the top. An overlay is shows that contains a menu:

The info button triggers a special “Inception” effect 🙂 The images start floating away from the wall as if gravity is defied:

We hope you enjoy this little experiment and find it inspiring!
