Amsterdam. A coffee with dynamically effect wooden tiles

Studio Akkerhuis creates a social place by using most of the wood, creating warmth and comfort, with a new material "Wood-skin".

Studio Akkerhuis designes a homy, dynamic and sharing space: a cafeteria  in the center of Amsterdam. Lebkov & Sons cafeteria is designed as an open kitchen where barista and customer share the same table imagined for having a meal or a coffee. The bar counter and the kitchen are the protagonists of the scene, while all around the sessions offer different ways of experiencing the space. In the kitchen, on wooden benches next to the reserves of fresh products; along the window, or even on an elevated platform. The products on sale are presented in a showcase placed in the main bar at a height that allows you to know all the menus. Always made with square tiles, the white and black brand pattern is here re-invented with “Wood-Skin”, wood so flexible as to seem woven, to create organic shapes. This black beech and fenix upholstery leather makes space uniform and creates movement on walls and furniture. The iconic patten of Lebkov makes a leap in the design of the open shelves: a modular steel structure in which a foldable element ofWood-Skin is inserted creating shelves and boxes for storing coffee beans and various products. Wood, cement and steel, together with the soft lighting, transmit cordiality and warmth.
