Coffee shop in Ioannina
Cafe Parole is situated on one of the most central pedestrian streets of the city of Ioannina just behind the Municipality building. Between diversion and refinement, noble and industrial materials, apparent mounting and precious finish, Topotheque expresses its dual style and writes a usage scenario faithful to the spirit of the greek café. This project was designed for professionals who have a short break between business as well as those who want to enjoy a cup of coffee between their shopping walk. The selected materials ascribe a classic character while the aperiodic penrose tiling pattern , which is applied on different elements imbue a modern essence. Furthermore, the alternating flooring materials (wood and marble) signify different spaces of the cafe, while the contrast of black and white colors on the walls and the details graphically outline the architectural lines. Most of the furniture was designed or customized specifically for the cafe and is arranged to create a variety atmospheres within an undivided space. As part of the Topotheque design team we realized the interior, and most of furniture as well as the graphic identity of the cafe.
