Blacksmith’s handcrafted coffee recently opened their first outlet in the region, with a café in the capital. The Design+Build contractors – Gemaco Interiors – were tasked with designing a coffee bar that reflected the unique new brand of Blacksmith’s handcrafted coffee, from the shell and core.
Interesting aspects of the project include the front of the counter: clad in Laminam tiles from Italy, specified for its unique technology that allows it to be manufactured 3mm thick and yet it’s very strong. Perfect for counters where maintenance and hygiene are essential, whilst the natural texture of the material elevated the design of the counter to one of the café’s key features. The custom joinery was manufactured locally in Gemaco’s sister company’s joinery factory, with loose furniture selected from Connection Seating and Frovi in the UK.
