Butlers Chocolate Cafes by 21 Spaces, Dublin – Ireland

November 1st, 2013 by retail design blog

The iconic Irish Chocolate Brand appointed 21 Spaces to design their newest store at Terminal 2 Dublin Airport. Located within the concourse the design brief was to lift the mood of the grey tone environment by creating a jewel to engage potential customers. The design of this complex unit which retails Chocolate (both packed & loose) and operates as a Cafe was given an organic but considered flow.

The centre piece is the counter which was developed in collaboration with Giles Miller Studio London, its a 4000 piece cast brass capped tiles individually mounted. The pattern is deliberately abstract as silk. The seating area (30 seats) is framed with curved black glass backed fitted seating on Bolon vinyl. 21 Spaces have designed stores for Butlers in Dublin, Dubai, Lahore & Auckland.
