Cafe, Coffee Bar
Nature, Minimalism and Flight are the inspirations.
The Nature theme in combination with minimalism, is meant to make the cafe look more interesting and less monotonous and cold. 'Fae' of Cafe Faebrew means flying; the focal point of the wall panelling is designed from the meaning and formed like a plane/wings. The simple style for the space matches the cafe's business model: Craft Coffee; Bar Style.

Faebrew combines simple elements and fine craftmanship for a unique look. This project is a reinterpretation of the minimalist look, with natural materials such as reclaimed wood and felt defining the decor. In particular, the feature wall highlights individual geometric panels that connect together to form a giant plane; placed onto LED backlights.

The felt panelling for the feature wall is the most challenging for the design process:
1. Sourcing the good supplier for the material and finding the good millwork company who's willing to be challenged by the new ideas and also flexible in the limited working budget.
2. Compromising the original design and changing it to the smaller scale with the simpler shape due to the cost saving and the other aspects of concerns. Due to the productive decisions and the team work, we've solved all the problems and the result look amazing!
