Sunrise and Sunset
If life is exhausting, unresolved and uncontrollable, how do we face it?
Leave the burden behind and move upward, to the heart, to the wilderness.——THE Darjeeling Limited

DOING COFFEE has been around for a long time. It has been called “VI, interior and product, armed to the teeth” by the industry. But we only want to express one thing: stop and feel the moment!

In a space of 140㎡, we built 5 walls and only 18 guest seats.
Walled, partitioned, but open; limited, constrained, but free.

The wall restricts the view and movement, but the curved wrapping makes each corner independent and private; the stacked glass blocks are cold and hard, but the layers of filtering make the light gentle and slow down the time.

There are few guest seats, but it becomes three areas, and the privacy density increases step by step. Resting, gathering, negotiating, compatible with various scenes.

你上一次看日落是什么时候？生活可能没那么复杂，只不过是一场日升日落。日出有曜，日落有夕，我们都要柔软一些、自然一些、快乐一些，活在当下。 Enjoy what you’re doing : )
When was the last time you watched a sunset? Life may not be that complicated, it’s just a sunrise and sunset. We all need to be softer, more natural and happier. Enjoy what you’re doing 🙂
