Warehouse-Style Eco Eateries
Elements of Fastvinic Cafe by Alfons Tost are Designed to Be Recycled

By: Katherine Vong (Superstar) Oct 21, 11

Interior designer Alfons Tost has designed this unique eco-friendly interior for the Fastvinic cafe in Barcelona.

The Fastvinic cafe has an over-arching warehouse-style look, with its tall wooden and metal shelves that are lined with potted plants—which help the “regeneration of the oxygen,” says the designer—and its hanging lamps, storage boxes and overall simplistic aesthetic. At the front of the cafe, a large glass window separates diners from the kitchen, allowing patrons to see their sandwiches being made. The cafe also has a lower level that houses the bathrooms, which feature charming basket-like sinks.

Tost’s goal was to infuse the entire space with sustainable elements; indeed, he says that the entire cafe was designed with elements that could be recycled and dismantled. Every part of the Fastvinic cafe is eco-friendly, from the lights, which operate on LEDs, to its food containers, which are 100 percent compostable.
