Dark patinated baking sheets get a second life as wall décor and lamp shades in Doppio Cafe Bistro, a new concept by architects mode:lina for an 87 year-old family run bakery in Poland.
With 18 stores in Toruń, one of the oldest cities in Poland, Bartkowscy is a bakery tradition that goes back to 1927. In 2014, in cooperation with mode:lina, the owners created a new concept with unique character on Aleja Solidarnosci, Doppio Cafe Bistro.
“The meeting with centenarian story of this family’s craftsmanship was a huge inspiration for the new interior design.” say the architects. “An aroma of fresh bread, huge ovens and old worn out baking sheets made it clear to the architects that the fusion of tradition and modern design is the answer.”
“A traditional atmosphere is introduced thanks oven-shaped furniture and natural wood mixed with little enamel white tilling. The counter and lighting are finished by meticulously selected wooden planks that may refer to traditional oven fuel.”
“A complement of whole is white-black mosaic floor that is the reminiscent of old stores.”
