A small, yet already famous among coffee gourmands, The Blue Cup coffee shop opened its doors a year ago in Kiev, Pushkinska str., 5. This autumn, 2015, the place reopened, as its space became twice as large, which in its turn required changes in design. The previous concept basic materials remained unaltered, as they add special spirit and atmosphere to the coffee shop. These include white tiles, white brick, grey ceramic floor, wooden ceiling and amber plywood.
The experience of two Ukrainian girls, designer Yova Yager and artist Nastya Ptichek for YOVA YAGER hospitality design, was creatively combined in this project. Owing to their creative synergies, this project speaks the language of The Red Book of Ukraine through pictures of plants and animals, depicted on its pages. The fresh interior suggests that the characters live on wallpapers, chairs and pillows, attracting the customers’ attention not only to their original appearance, but also to reasons that lead to the extinction of these particular fauna and flora species.
