Okkio Caffe, Hồ Chí Minh – Vietnam

Okkio Caffe is a chain of coffee shops that has 2 branches in the market.
Vuong Gia Ve is an influential and inspiring director for the Okkio Caffe, so this design story was inspired by the movie “2046”, his film about the return train from the year 2046.

Based on this idea, the building’s façade is designed as train windows with iron bars as the highlight.
Furthermore, the ceiling inside is built up with the curved shape as the train’s one.
Moreover, the “frame in frame” is decorated with the idea of bringing natural light from the windows and ceilings directly onto the floor.

The highlights here, which are the counter and the ceiling system of the building, have been emphasized.
Along with the brand’s traditional materials such as old brick and copper, which create a cozy and warm environment as usual, other more modern materials such as the gradient effect of the paint and the style of the polyethylene ceiling have been introduced.

The color of the light will change differently at different times of the day, creating a special experience throughout the different hours of the day.
In the morning, it will be delighted by the natural light flowing down the side of the ceiling hole.

At night, Okkio will be warm, romantic and private for customers thanks to the light focused mainly on the corner of the bar.

If people get a chance to watch Okkio in the vibrant sunset, you will surely be struck by the peaceful red building with tons of light moving like a movie from the future going back to the past.

Pani, Aventura Mall, Aventura – USA

The space is demur. The interior is anything but. The mash up of colors and curated cues create an energy and design dislocation which becomes totally connected when assembled.

The combination of design styles merge as one to create a space that makes you smile, and feel happy. The juxtaposition of traditional and modern blends seamlessly, but the standout is the immersive design wow, wonder and surprise to see such an eclectic mix of styles harmonizing as one design lyric.

This concept is the first USA based outpost of a very tony and recognized brand in South America.
As a critical brand mission, each location is to be local and authentic. With this there is a color and sensibility that in a sophisticated in a Willy Wonka way that almost feels that the cakes and pastries have come to life in the interior design. Design is Delicious.

Felix Roasting Co., Manhattan, New York – USA

By creating a glorious space and producing the best coffee with the utmost care, what has become an important part of many people’s lives has been elevated and honored as a shared experience. The antithesis to the industrial style of coffee culture. Instead of live wood, concrete and steel, a luxurious, elegant and highly aesthetic café was imagined which, through its design, would elevate the daily coffee ritual.

Reference has been made to classical architecture and sacred geometry used in cathedrals as a way to define space and create a central focal point. There is also a clear reference to the old European coffee culture in Vienna and Milan, as well as the secessionist movement to inspire the brand identity and custom motifs for wallpapers and wall coverings.

Kebun Bistro, Ubud, Bali – Indonesia

Kebun, a charming Provencal-style bistro in downtown Ubud, offers authentic Mediterranean cuisine in a delightful atmosphere.

Its informal ambience welcomes diners for lunch, afternoon coffee and cake, tapas, cocktails,  and late-night light dining daily.

Indonesia’s fragile environment deserves our protection: all the wood used in Kebun’s decor and furnishing is recycled. The pizza and cheese boards are made from recycled teak from Kalimantan. All the wood trim is from Java as is the authentic 1940s furniture. The cast-iron Singer sewing machine table bases topped with marble are at least 50 years old and the old porcelain door knobs were sourced from a flea market in Paris. Kebun’s feature wall is constructed from local river rock. The outside floors are limestone slag and the interior floors are terracotta tile, a traditional craft on the island.

Once inside the welcoming front door, notice the hand-hammered copper pots and ceramics, all made in Indonesia by traditional craftsmen with passionate attention to detail. The large open kitchen is ventilated with hand-made copper flues.

Food delivery is packed in recycled paper and local organic produce is used whenever available.
Food waste from the kitchen is composted except for the bones, which are distributed to the delighted dogs along the street.
