The company, Cafes Salzillo, commercializes a high quality type of coffee and is committed to the environment. This philosophy should be present in its new shop.
This is why we decided to develop a space that was basically built with recyclable materials, using cutting techniques. Paper panels were used as they are suitable for automatic cutting and can create a volume that could remind us of a coffee bean. This space works as a small capsule to relax in, away from the hustle and bustle of the shopping centre, where the soft walls isolate from the exterior noise, and the smell of freshly ground coffee wafts through the air.
Altogether, 95% of the volume was made of paper. The material is fire and water resistant and was cut in 128 pieces later assembled in-situ the rest was made of materials that can be easily re-used if.
