To complement the urban lifestyle , a lively and inspiring atmosphere has to be injected into the space, yet with design elements that also inspired and offered as a new destination lifestyle cafe’
The café interior contains a collection of knobs that summaries and inspire how we can adopt knob to other functional and space the impression of knob is a key achievement for this store.
A existing brick wall be created a lot of display items by using blue+green color tone to accent and reflect the industrial tone of the café. This unique identity is knob by using varieties of it to adopt to other function as innovative way.
