A Kuwait coffee shop embraces the popularity of industrial design with a curiously minimalist interior. Dubbed '% Arabica,' the cafe surely captures attention by way of its bold, yet pared-back arrangement. What's more, the space is absent in traditional seating arrangements. Instead, the Kuwait coffee shop boasts a concrete stepped silhouette that can accommodate the guests of % Arabica.
The industrial-style aesthetic is arranged by Japanese studio Nendo. The firm also infused the cafe with some attention-captivating features — this includes the gold-accented table framework and the "gold-hued decor details." Each of these elements is intended to evoke a luxe aesthetic that "symbolizes the quality of [Kuwait coffee shop's] high-end products."
