De-Tox is a distinguished Greek coffee chain store with several spots along Greece. In September 2018, Lab4 architects were asked to design a brand new 98 sq.m store in Trikala, following the basic brand forms, bringing however an evolution to the whole design identity.
A street coffee store is a place of meeting, making a short break from the daily routine and enjoying some coffee or brunch. This “urban oasis” demands everything to function in time, making “speed” an element of high importance.
Focusing on the main brand motto (the angle café), the architects got inspiration from the primitive shape of the “angle”, creating a series of constructions, patterns and formations. The angle was proven to be the most representing shape of “speed”.
A laser cut metal hanging construction prevails in the seating area through its dynamic form, giving a sense of motion in the space. Triangle steel flower pots, over the bar, intensify this dynamic sense.
On the other hand, oak veneered mdf panels in combination with stone and cement plaster textures create a sense of calmness and coziness while a vertical garden wall completes the overall hospitable space result.
