Shani Coffee shop Bakery a traditional bakery based in Haifa specialized in a rich variety of cakes and special desserts is a company of many branches located in different cities around Israel. The duo Itzik & Fay from studio Dehab at Work were called to create a new elaborate design concept for the Shani chain to lead the innovative growth of the company by keeping as strong elements the traditional and authentic character of the brand.
The store front made out of hardwood carpentry with a blue pastel finish upholds the feeling of a traditional bakery. Concrete platforms are created on each side of the entrance door emphasizing a raised display of the main bakery goods. A main counter made out of oak carpentry detailed with elegant wooden wings covered with a counter top from nero marquina marble acts as the central element in the space. The costume display shelving unit behind the counter structured by ladder columns stained in the shade of grey allows the products to take the stage!
Chalkboards are blended in the composition give a preview of the day’s menu lighted with costume made copper lighting fixtures adjusted as suited with the use of flexible pipes.
The wooden shelving structure expands in the length of the entire wall creating an area for retail display in the back of the store, of bakery and patisserie products for which the brand is very well know for!
The main sitting area across from the counter is designed with a long costume made couch and oval tables from marble and wood. The walls are painted in a muted light blue shade creating a base to the wall and adding height to the long rectangular space. The fishbone stone floor with the light grey color blends a rough and earthy feeling into the design to create a united and warm atmosphere.
