Good afternoon! (for me it’s actually still morning, not really an early bird)
Today it’s about industrial cafes! Industrial style has been a hot (even though it actually gives a rather cold feeling) design idea for some time now. Everyone wants to live in a loft these days, especially nouveau riche society class. Urban areas for urban people. An old factory or a power station, adapted to living needs, is a perfect creative and full of its own life setting. Prices of studio apartments in Battersea Power Station in London start at £800,00, but you can also get something bigger for even £4 million! So, yeah, there’s demand for rough open spaces with metal and wood.
Industrial is also making a foray into cafes’ and bakeries’ interiors! Look down to get an idea of the trend.
But what I find even cooler than adapting a not necessarily originally industrial space into a cafe is simply using a real old industrial building for that purpose, without changing anything, except of just putting a coffee machine and some chairs in there . Such a natural and effortless way of giving a cafe or a restaurant a raw twist. It’s REAL and we want real stuff in this superficial world, no?
And, yes, you can be sure that your favourite cafe will be a unique one, because there are not too many naturally industrial interiors around you, at least not too many left.
Modern Art Museum Cafe in Warsaw. An inspiring city. Naturally industrial because of its Communist history, glorifying industry.
