2019 | CAFÉ | SURRY HILLS
Combining innovative references to the coffee industry heavyweight’s pioneering sustainability ethics via recycled materials plus visual nods to the coffee-making process, a playful urban edge brews within.
Mini parachutes reminiscent of coffee filter domes delicately float from geometrical cloud-like fibreboard arrangements upon the ceiling, whilst tactile cork-finishes upon the service counter complement the latte hues of the surrounding walls. A brusquely finished optical mural creates the illusion of recessed depth within the compact rectangular space, it’s dribbling paintwork alluding to Single O’s pioneering introduction of drip filter coffee to Sydney.
