Cafe Corner is located in the very heart of the city of Gdynia, Poland, in a modernist tenement house built in 1920s. Therefore, the project is inspired by the spirit of the Roaring Twenties. The facade with the original mirror tiles on the outside and the wall created from 2740 teacups on the inside give an impressive feeling when you approach the cafe.
The unconventionality of the project showed while seeking a company to produce teacups with openings, which were necessary to create the installation. It is interesting to note that the entire process had to take place before firing the ceramics in order not to produce too much waste. Thanks to the architect’s commitment and trust shown by the investor the final effect leaves all guests in awe. Multiple wooden elements, vintage posters and a logo designed especially for the café add special flavour to the interior. – from the author
