This pink cafe, as architects stated, was planned to be the pinkest one in a whole city of Poznan, Poland, and I can tell that it was successful (even though I didn’t see others but deep inside I believe that it succeeded).
Maybe it’s not the pinkest all over the world, but I have never seen that there wasn’t too much of it and everything matched together and here is a rather subtle version – not too girlish and contemporary at the same time.
It’s interesting that this pink cafe is joined with a shop that is not difficult to notice, as there’s a plenty of toys around! It’s difficult to believe that the area of a cafe is only 45 square metres (seen exactly to customers because it all takes 65 square metres), therefore, the objects that must be sold are neatly arranged in shelves which go through the ceiling and descend to a counter area where shelves serve for a cafe staff.
Shelves are made of plywood, architects left natural bricks on the walls (only painted them in white) and in a cafe zone white tiles in a pattern of herringbone are glued. A traditional kitchen counter is replaced with kitchen isle which let visitors feel as if they were home.
Architects wanted to get exactly this feeling and I think that they succeeded! And how do you think?
