1895 Coffee Designers by Lavazza

MOSO Bamboo Products as Manufacturers

1895 by Lavazza is a new brand of the Lavazza Group focused on single-origin and blended specialty coffees, which seeks to combine the search for origins from independent and sustainable plantations with the highest technology in coffee processing. The project involved the complete refurbishment of an existing building, located in the historic Settimo Torinese plant, which is both a high-tech production site and an accessible visitor centre. Architect Uboldi Paolo (UP-A), who was selected as 40under40 Winners 2020 by the European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies, fully focused on the experience for visitors. After the renovation, there is total transparency of both the coffee selection cycle and its processing. The factory processes and machines are constantly in motion, but the visitor can walk past them safely thanks to a bridge above the machinery. The bridge covering is made of bamboo, a material selected for its characteristics in terms of mechanical resistance and sustainability, as well as being a very common grass in coffee production areas.
