Singapore based Hjgher Studio have designed the interiors for Kith Café in Singapore. The new cafe features custom-made flexible and movable furniture units. Here is some information by the Kith Café, “It was not just a matter of coming up with a Kith Cafe, but creating a complete Kith experience. This meant no fancy lampshades, mass-manufactured furniture, or unnecessarily printed materials were to be used in its interior. Instead, the focus was on delivering an unassuming space that could support Kith’s honest philosophy and ethos.
The custom-made furniture for the seating area was designed to be flexible and movable, to break down personal space barriers and encourage customers to interact. To maximize floor space, most modular blocks can double as either a table or a bench; and even used to seat two people instead of one as needed. This way, the small space can accommodate a group of up to twenty.
Emphasis was also placed on relaying the sincerity and openness of the cafe: open wrought iron shelves openly display the storage of fresh produce and most of the outlet’s inventory. In line with the informal atmosphere, the space is adorned by one sole piece of “decoration” – a handwritten menu on the chalkboard wall, where old specials are casually wiped off with new ones scribbled on daily.”
