Coffee Shop in Cape Town, South Africa


Features on interior design here on Colossal are few and far between, there are times when a space is so wholly original it’s just too hard to pass up. Case in point: Truth Coffee Shop in Cape Town, South Africa.








This radically designed steampunk-themed coffee shop was created by Heldane Martin who considered the form factor of espresso machines and coffee roasters to be somewhat similar to the Victorian futuristic fantasy style found in the aesthetic of steampunk.



The hope was also to personify Truth’s attempt at roasting the very best coffee by offering a perfectly executed space.



Every inch of the coffee shop is packed with visual candy from large saw-blade tabletops to beautiful overstuffed booths and an ornate array of coffee making equipment that looks absurdly complex, almost like interior of a World War 2 submarine. If that wasn’t enough, Martin also crammed the space with vintage typewriters, Singer sewing machines, and old candlestick telephones.



The design even extends to the restrooms which have exposed copper pipes, old extending mirrors and victorian tap levers.



Questo progetto è stato creato da Heldane Martin, ha ricreato la forma delle vecchie macchine per il caffè espresso in completo stile Vittoriano fantasy futuristico.




Ogni centimetro del negozio è pieno di caffè e caramelle insieme a grandi tavoli a forma di sega a lama con divani imbottiti e una serie di attrezzature strane che ornato fare il bar. Se questo non fosse abbastanza, Martin ha anche trovato lo spazio per posizionare delle macchine da scrivere d'epoca , macchine da cucire Singer , e vecchi telefoni candlestick.





Il design si estende anche per i servizi igienici con tubi di rame a vista, vecchi specchi vittoriani e rubinetti in stile .
