The Don Cafe House by Innarch is Inspired by Sacks of Coffee Beans

The stunning design of the Don Cafe House might be appropriately inspired by a sack of coffee beans, but the first thing that will come to some people's minds is The Great Wave off Kanagawa painting. As though reinterpreted using strips of wooden plywood, this focal point of the Don Cafe House is a curvaceous bench that bleeds into the wall as though it were a crashing wave.

Designed by Innarch, the Don Cafe House is located in Pristina, Kosovo. The ribbed effect of the wall is mimicked throughout the rest of the space from the lampshades to the coffee counter. Visually striking, the end result is a sculptural interior that is at once decorative and functional. Not to mention that the organic look is extremely comforting.
