Kava & Chai is a homegrown specialty coffeehouse inspired by Arabian tea and coffee culture. Designed by 4Space, this 376 square foot specialty coffee shop located in the Mall of Emirates features tube installations and globe lights that serve as the central focal points of the design. Inspired by the Arabica tree and clusters of coffee beans, the space incorporates the product through graphic patterns. A colour palette of teal, brown and orange gives depth, and an interesting alternative to white walls. The colour, along with specifically designed lights, make the compact space quite unique and eye catching. Modern terrazzo with inlays of Kava & Chai are used on the table tops, while the flooring features Palladiana terrazzo (a type of mosaic finish incorporating the use of large marble slabs). These larger sized aggregates help to create a graphic effect. The popular pantone colour Living Coral was applied to the upholstery for the chairs and seating pods, which seemed to be the right answer for the tight seating space.
