Designed by XM3 Studio, this cool coffee shop on the busy Piotrkowska Street in Łódź city of Poland. The street which was once a symbol of wealth of the one of the richest cities in this region of Europe is now an axis of mostly poor and degenerated district with monumental architecture from before the Second World War. With a very small budget we created an outstanding space to host the artistic and culture parties for the creative youth of the city. The owners of the restaurant want to propose a space for happenings, art-exhibitions, and various art-oriented venues.
The interiors of this restaurant is characterized by it’s undulating cave-like ceiling made from wood. Light bulbs dangle from between the curved plywood ribs of the cafe. Shelves are slotted between ridges in the wall, behind a bar that is also made from the ribbed timber. Patches of plaster are visible on walls, which are intentionally left unfinished. Planes of glass atop wavy plywood grids provide coffee tables.
