This well known coffee shop moved to a different part of the V&A which provided me the opportunity to design a fresh, modern space with the global citizen in mind; somewhere one can sit, rest, have a coffee or light meal with the added convenience of points to connect and power up digital devices.
The layout was challenging with limited space available in the mall passage to seat customers, display food, drinks, confectioner and ice cream, make coffee, refrigerate, prep, wash up and more. The optimum usage of every millimeter of space was taken into account. The furniture in the seating area was custom designed for the tiny seating space and dipped in delicious colors for fun.
Good illumination was critical in a mall already filled with flat light – to achieve this the food displays where brought to life using a concrete and timber pendant with specialized globes inside.
The design incorporates a mix of crisp white surfaces and light ash timber mixed with colourful features, details and branding to create a modern look but one that also speaks to Love Revenge’s affair with delicious ice creams, confectionery and coffee.
