the font and the bean

(the font coffee bar)

The brief was simple: design a coffee shop around these core ideals: Real farmers. Real roasters. Real baristas.

The importance of coffee authenticity became the central idea behind the The Font Coffee Bar, located in the quiet town of Fonthill, ontario. The simplicity of the coffee plant, from stem to flower to bean weaves through the design in stylised geometric plant motifs found in millwork wall panels, the cnc cut counter face to the central dividing screen defined by layers of vertical plywood leaves. Deep greens and warm greys wash over walls while its main tiled art wall frames the view down the cafes long narrow space.
