Cafe Ki

id inc. as Designers

A cafe like a small forest has been created in Tokyo.


Cafe Ki opened in Setagaya-ku, Tokyo in Japan, designed by Japanese design office id.


Ki means a tree in Japanese. It is a cafe where coffee and pastries can be enjoyed in a space like a yard or a forest. The pure white space enhances the coffee colored trees. The "tree" standing inside the café takes a role as a table leg made of steel. Hats and coats can be hung on the highly extended table legs.


Although a large number of people can sit around the big table, it can maintain a sense of comfortable distance while sharing the table with a different group since wooden branches help to divide the space on the table. Moreover, the leg of the table randomly stands and those who sit down can freely choose a place where to sit.


The grove where trees are randomly standing brings a deeper impression from front to back than actually it is.


Japanese design office id designed for Café Ki not only the interior but also, the graphics, costumes (uniform), website, original products, and etc.
