Mignon Varietes du Monde store by Atmosfere Interior Design, Viseu de Sus – Romania

July 5th, 2017 by retail design blog

Mignon Varieties du Monde is a pastry and cake shop in Maramures, Romania. A family business, the first private pastry and cake shop in Viseu de Sus, after the communism fall. In 2016, the owner’s son and daughter in law took the lead of the business and after they did a pastry course with Massimo Picca at Pica Pastry School in Milano, they decided to open for their products a new place, with a young touch, but to keep something from their old story.

The place has around 135 sqm and is located at the first floor of a building. The staircase that is entering directly into the place, so the railings had to be treated as decorative objects, because we did not want to block the light. This is why I created a railing from vertical distanced elements of natural oak and one in glass.

With some pieces of furniture, I created a zone partially withdrawn for the people who want a little intimacy. The design style is a contemporary one, with simple lines and pastel colors, airy, to be a background for the amazing and colorful design of the cakes produced and sold there. I have created a young and playful atmosphere with a midcentury touch.

I chose natural materials, colors and textures like natural oak used for the furniture, railings and for flooring inserts; green accents for the chairs, curtains details and for some walls; grey shades of stone for the flooring and walls; black and grey metal in the lighting objects, the terrace chairs and for the logos; white cotton for the curtains.

All of these have the purpose to respect and highlight the place where this pastry shop carry out their activity – Viseu de Sus, Maramures, a little town in a mountain area, known by tourists from worldwide for Mocanita. My last touch on the project is on the wall handwriting and on the framed drawings in graphite and charcoal that I drew as decorations.
