Location: Bremen, Germany
I love the simplicity of materials used in this space. The poured concrete counters, concrete walls, wood benches and metal tables all show restraint, while incorporating a a slight urban and modern feeling. One of my favorite components of the design is the repetitious pendants hung over the very long community table. I enjoy that community tables are becoming more common that white table clothes and feel that they open up the dining experience by enhancing the community component. There are definitely times for white table clothes and a maitre d', but many everyday dining experiences can be enhanced through interaction and proximity between customers.
