Only If Architects draw on futurism and sci-fi to design this space coffee bar, which boasts metallic paint, perforated aluminum and black rubber. Located in Manhattan's financial district, Voyager Espresso is a quick stop for morning coffee. The metallic atmosphere reflects the "scientific approach to coffee" the company wishes to maintain.
As even wooden materials are stripped of their naturality by aluminium enamel paint coating, Only If has been successful in creating a space coffee bar with a rather minimalist interior that does not lure in with the stereotypical warmth of cafe boutiques. However, the futuristic decor does carry a certain intelligence and vibe that make it ideal for analytical and cogent conversations.
