Truth Coffee by Haldane Martin, Cape Town – South Africa

May 26th, 2013 by retail design blog

A huge vintage coffee roaster is the centrepiece and inspiration for Cape Town’s Truth Coffee. “We immediately came up with steampunk as an appropriate conceptual reference, as both coffee roasters and espresso machines display elements of romantic, steam-powered technology,” explains designer Haldane Martin. The coffee shop is housed in a three-story turn of the century warehouse on Buitenkant Street. The building was pared down to accentuate the original features and patina of exposed stone and brick walls, cast iron pillars, and pine roof trusses and floors.

Raw steel, timber, leather, brass and copper finishes were central to the interior design and complimented the building’s worn aesthetic. Martin designed all of the furniture for the café, which includes high-backed leather banquettes, ornate steel tables and smaller cog-shaped tables. What we liked most about this space is how the concept is reflected throughout the space, even to the finest detail.
