We were approached to create a concept for interior design of a boutique specialty coffee shop in Abu Dhabi. For Caffeino, the owners wanted a light, cozy, warm and inviting space to serve their artisanal Italian blends and homemade fresh pastry. We developed the concept of the cafés interior design to be an escape within the city. Designed to create an enveloping, elegant atmosphere, we used simple organic shapes and an earthy, natural approach to materials. Whitewashed textured walls give the space a weathered and well lived-in feel. The café’s grounded character is accentuated by biophilic features and floor to ceiling mirrors – adding to the space's volume and height.
