When you’re gasping for a cuppa (that’s desperate for a cup of tea for anyone who doesn’t live in the UK), you’re not going to get hung up on the size of the nearest café. Yet a number of leading designers have made a virtue out of limited space by creating functionally innovative and aesthetically intriguing eating and drinking spaces that punch well above their weight.

Published by leading design press Laurence King, ‘Very Small Cafés & Restaurants’ is a showcase of some of the most inspirational diminutive projects in this particular industry. Rule number one: each project featured in the book measures less than 150 square metres. The work of, among others, Thomas Heatherwick, Marti Guixé and Wonderwall, is generously illustrated and Stones’s commentary addresses branding and graphics, as well as interior design.

The book, of course, reads even better with a cup of tea in your hand, sitting in a café. So what are you waiting for?
