Café Slatkine

At the heart of Geneva's old town, Café Slatkine reinvents the genre of the literary cafe, books on one side and bottles on the other.    Opened in 1918 by Mendel Slatkine, the venue is an unmissable, centenary-old institution of Calvin's city.

brew92 Palazzo

This was Brew92’s second branch in Riyadh that Liqui’s coffee shop designers have worked on. This is a coffee shop design of two halves – with one half of the walls, floors and ceiling being finished in black and the other in natural coloured wood. It had to tie in with their latest ‘Back To Basics’ approach which puts their speciality coffee at the heart of everything. This was followed through in the cafe interior with our long coffee bar design that is positioned front and centre. This makes the ground floor of this two-storey coffee shop ideal for socialising around the coffee counter. Surrounding the walls we’ve placed cafe furniture in the form of our Milne Chairs and Studio Cafe Tables with our Wo... More
