2021 | CAFE | TOKYO
Unstitching the severity of its concrete fabric whilst adding an urban edge, blackened and galvanised steel plus copper elements instantly layer this café with a settled patina.
Innovative tonal references to Singe O’s offering and pioneering sustainability ethics plus playful visual nods to the coffee-making process (including paper and drip filtration) abound in keeping with the aesthetics of all their Luchetti Krelle-designed Sydney cafés. Artistic touches include a cloud-like geometrical installation by Sydney’s Renuka Fernando featuring stained recycled paper with coffee and cascara (coffee fruit tea), plus an optical wall mural by Tokyo artist, Washio Tomoyuki.
36 internal, 10 outdoor
