Japanese designer Yota Kakuda used a bespoke aluminium tile to cover the walls and floors in this shop that sells baked cheese tarts. Kakuda aimed to make the Bake store in the northern Japanese city of Sendai look like a factory, creating a series of grey cast aluminium tiles to cover the entire space.
A wall completely covered in yellow serving boxes brings an injection of colour to the store, and is intended to reflect the company’s branding. Cheese tarts are presented upon a large tiled table in the middle of the store, along with iPads that are used as tills. Customers are able to see the tarts being freshly baked inside a glass-fronted oven, which is mostly concealed by a wall to keep the space looking minimal.
