De-Tox is a distinguished Greek coffee chain store. Lab4 architects designed a brand new 98 sq.m store in Trikala, following the basic brand forms, bringing however an evolution to the whole design identity.
Focusing on the main brand motto (the angle café), the architects gained inspiration from the primitive shape of the “angle”, creating a series of constructions, patterns and formations. The angle is the most representing shape of “speed”.
A laser cut metal hanging construction gives a sense of motion in the space through its dynamic form. Triangle steel flower pots, over the bar, intensify this dynamic sense. Oak veneered mdf panels in combination with stone and cement plaster textures create a sense of comfort while a vertical garden wall completes the overall hospitable space result.
What makes this project one-of-a-kind?
The most important characteristic of De-Tox café Trikala is the combination of a unique design, as well as a high standard construction at a reasonable cost. Apart from this, what makes this store so genuine is the fact that it covers every age group.
