I keep falling in love with Studio Mode’s Graffiti Café. It’s so jaw dropping that it has to be shared. This swanky modern restaurant is located in a boutique hotel in Varna, Bulgaria and has enough linear details and features throughout that really catch your eye as well as let it casually wander through.
The detail is in the linear ply wood slats. These create the curvy pillars and continue elegantly to the ceiling, hiding all sins of mechanical systems and lighting beneath a black back drop .
Studio Mode’s lead designer on the café, Svetoslav Todorov, describes how he integrated the interior into the rest of the building: “We brought elements and materials of the building’s façade into the front zone of the café and applied them to the ceiling. We also used sidewalk pavers on the interior floors. This draws the textures of the street into the café, while connecting the profile of the building envelope to the café.”
This is pure simplistic fusion at its best.
