ukranian studio kleydesign has renovated a coffee shop one year after its original opening in kiev. named ‘the blue cup coffee shop’, the interiors have been designed to tell a story; specifically referencing the red book of ukraine. the cafe is animated by an eclectic array of patterns, colors and materials and at the same time, the designers chose to keep and blend existing materials from the previous interiors such as the white tiling, brick and wooden ceiling.

the updated and extended interiors take on a different concept and atmosphere – most noticeably defined by the vibrant wallpaper illustrated with animals and plants. seating with plain fabric have been juxtaposed against seating with floral patterns and cushions. this visual contrast attracts customers attention while instilling a playful atmosphere.
