Daga Cafe Interior by byn StudioOctober 18th, 2012 - Posted in Interior Design
Located in Downtown Shanghai, The DAGA Café offers enjoy a simple meal in a comfortable space. This simple interior was deigned by byn Studio. The space has a U shape around the public staircase of the building and was highly influenced by the presence of a sequence of beams and pipes hanging 1 meter below the ceiling.
Description from byn Studio
“The design decision was to create a new sculpted sharp envelope that will wrap the space from inside. Following this principle we create a continuous white inner skin that folds hiding all the preexistent defects and integrates the café programs (such a wine cellar, library, restrooms and kitchen). This sculpted new skin drastically changes the proportion of the space, and provides to the user with a sequence of distinctive spaces. In the heart of the space we locate a large angled white marble and glass bar that organizes the guests and the staff flow. The use of traditional materials such a reclaimed wood from demolished old houses, brown leather, recycled ceramic floor tiles and white marble, contrasts with the triangulated white surfaces providing an abstract warm environment where the antique furniture stands out. The seating arrangements were mainly influenced by the preexisting collection of furniture providing a variety of dining experiences: from standing around the bar, group parties at the VIP room, sofa lounge by the glass facade, small tables along the bench or hiding in the low-ceiling mezzanine.”
