Sometimes a nightclub isn't just about the music and this new venue in Brazil proves why.

The Year in São Paulo comes with a cage hanging over the dancefloor, lit up by LED lights controlled by the movements and temperature of clubbers.

"How does it happen?" you ask. A censor above the floor responds to what's happening below and even the actions of the DJ in the booth.

According to architect Guto Requena, "It’s a dancefloor that reacts to the guests’ stimulation, working as an extension of their own bodies."

The 700-capacity club, located in the city's Vila Nova Leopoldina area, consists of three bars, two dancefloors and a VIP area, with Requena's website saying the concept covers "interactive, nature, industrial".
