Newly opened Kaffeverket (Swedish for The Coffee Works) takes traditional Swedish design and gives it a couple of modern twists. Mikael Abbhagen from design and retail concept agency A-B-D sent us these pictures. “It’s a play with contrasts of materials. From the roughness of Swedish limestone on the counter and tables, to the softness of the velvet drapes and the more modern feeling of bronzed glass and brass walls.” Inspired by the building that dates back to 1905 and wanting to play with classical Swedish colours and materials in order to create a modern design, fellow designer Fredrik Bengtsson added that they wanted to create a modern design with a clear heritage. Certainly gives the big franchises something to aim for. Mine’s a Ristretto thanks!
