    Cafe Design With Whimsical Pop Of Orange | Studio Mestry

    Wok This Way is a quick service cafe serving traditional Asian cuisines. The client brief given to us was simple, they wanted to create a space that would have an oriental look and feel and will stand out in a neighborhood which is overly crowded with restaurants and cafes.

     

    Our idea was to create a bright and inviting cafe that adds a whimsical pop of orange to the block, as orange is their brand colour. Since it was a tiny space of roughly 350 sq.ft. with a high ceiling, we wanted to create a more intimate experience while bringing out the oriental element in a subtle way.

    We wanted to avoid clichéd references to Chinese culture in India, and thus refrained from using obvious traditional patterns or symbols anywhere in the space.

    Instead we used a combination of orange, pale wooden seating and table tops and contemporary elements  to redefine the Asian design. To add the informality of a street like feel, we used grey terrazzo floor tiles along with lantern like lighting and laser cut metal artwork inspired by oriental food Wok this way offers.

    Traditional woven cane is used in the space through a series of arches for the kitchen partition and high back rest for the seating. Along with the cane backrest, inspiration was also drawn from the traditional Asian window  design with mullion grids for the backrest.

    Wall art with a contemporary take on the Oriental patterns and graphics along with planters suspended from dimsum boxes is placed on one wall and wooden shelves supported by circular orange metal rings are placed on the other. Overall the design is kept simple by using geometrical shapes, clean graphics and arches set against a vibrant orange backdrop.
