Meir Guri, the Israeli designer was faced with a challenge: design a pure mid-century cafe/restaurant with a twist, in a shopping mall in Tel Aviv. Our thoughts? 10/10. Here’s why:
At Cafeteria, pink is the predominant color.
In the Gindi Fashion Mall, the task was difficult and simple at the same time: create a cafe that stand out from everything else and that you can easily spot it. And Meir nailed it.
With an open plan dinning room, you can actually spot Cafeteria from across the street.
Once you get there, you will immediately get the mid-century vibes you expect.
A beautiful color contrast between the walls and the furniture is the thing that will get you hooked. The pink wall-covered walls contrast with the multi colored marble floor.
Another thing is the bars, booths and dining tables that will throw your mind back in time.
Funny story about that floor.
Meir was faced with a very challenging proposal: make a cafe that would stand out in the mall, that would have a unique style to it, with a limited budget.
He knew, from the start, that the floor would have to be in marble. But the budget wouldn’t allow an order of marble from any company so, what he did was, he went to several marble suppliers and basically bought the “left overs” for a discounted price and asked them to cut the marble in triangle shapes. That is why the restaurant has triangle shaped flooring with multiple colors.
Pretty cool, right?
As you have noticed, this cafe/restaurant relies on the color pink, and that is not an accident.
Millennial Pink is described by design critics as the most popular color for restaurants in the past few years now.
But, when asked, the color pink doesn’t worry Meir one bit. He says that the color is an elegant and adult one that clearly transmits a solid message of power.
So, in conclusion, Cafeteria is one of the most mid-century restaurants we have ever seen.
You can spot it by the usage of a lot of plants and pendent lighting, by the room having a lot of natural light, the usage of marble and brass and even the geometric shapes on the floor!
Kind of makes you want to visit it, right?
