Today it is no longer a matter of taste as to how and which coffee we drink, as it is even more important where we enjoy it. A multitude of new cafes, coffee shops and coffee houses around the world honor a centuries old tradition, setting thereby new design trends. The task is to create communicative and inspiring locations and spaces, which at the same time measure up to the functional demands. The design solutions are as varied as the concepts, the transitions to lounge, club or restaurant are flowing. After an informative introduction, Coffee Time presents current projects that show the exciting conceptual and stylistic breadth of cafe designs today.
