An italian coffee shop, with the vision to give customers who are short on time the opportunity to enjoy a coffee and relax. The creative spark of this concept begins with where the coffee is prepared and the design of the shell mimics the pouring of coffee from the machine into the cup to form a solid structure. This shell structure both leads and accompanies the client and encourages them to lose themselves in the the aroma and flavors. It surrounds and encases them from the frenetic outside world, even if only for a few minutes. Once finished, the customer can discard their coffee cups and snacks in the center of the table, so the place can be left clean and tidy, which helps to maintain a fast turnover.
