蒙特利尔著名的钢制家具设计和生产工作室MDT Mobilier推出了新的Osmo X Marusan咖啡露台的概念，这里曾经是Osmo咖啡厅，而其业主Hideyuki Imaizumi和David Schmidt想要改变场地职能，将咖啡厅改造成混合功能的公共空间，囊括咖啡厅、酒吧、精品店和活动空间。
MDT Mobilier, a well-known Montreal steel furniture design and production studio, is proud to unveil its concept for the new Osmo X Marusan café-terrace, formerly known as Café Osmo. Owners Hideyuki Imaizumi and David Schmidt wanted to change the venue’s vocation and transform the café into a hybrid collective space that serves as a café, bar, boutique, and event space.

Inspired by the space’s brutalist style and historical details, the team wanted to preserve its unique character, while playing up the style to make it even more iconic. With the direction set, the interior design and furniture were made entirely to order. Long, galvanized-steel communal tables at the centre of the space create the desired unifying tone. Running along the angular walls, a brick bench echoes the exposed foundation of the adjacent bicentennial building. The result is a versatile, sober space that adapts to the multiple dimensions of the company.

The materials—galvanized steel, brick, and polycarbonate—were chosen for their suitability in a streamlined production process involving little manipulation in order to respect both the limited budget and the minimalist spirit inherent to the modernist style. Once assembled, these three materials don’t require any finishing or protective layer, allowing them to be used as is. The reflective quality of galvanized steel, used for most surfaces, tables, counters, and fixtures, brings the space to life throughout the day, and from one season to the next. Over time, this raw, responsive material will change under the surrounding environment, and will develop a patina to give it a slightly more matte look. The chairs, which were custom designed for the space, are finished in a sandstone red powder coat to create a link to the bricks in the foundation and bench. The existing base of the service counter, which was retained to avoid wasting material, is overlaid with polycarbonate and dimmable LED strips. In order to imbue the semi-basement café with a sense of grandeur, the ambience and furniture were designed to keep the focal point low, leaving the large concrete ceiling, with its three skylights, unobstructed.

新的公共空间设计强调了Osmo X Marusan的独特体验，无论是通过定制家具，还是使用原始的、适应性强的材料，都能和谐地融入既有建筑。
The new design of the communal space emphasizes the uniqueness of the Osmo X Marusan experience, both through the bespoke furniture, and through the use of raw, adapted materials, which pair harmoniously with the existing architecture.
