Barbaar Café

I got the amazing opportunity to start a café in a monumental building in Delft. My responsibility was to come up with the overall theme that served as the starting point of the interior design and overall branding.

The cafe is called Barbaar, meaning barbarian in Dutch, and is surrounded by an art gallery and shop, debate room and maker space. Barbaar celebrates, embraces and invites the so-called misfits and crazy-ones that moved humanity forward.

With a limited budget aiming on a transparent, rough yet clean design;
underlayment wood offered the best option on cost level, looks and workability. The bar is topped with 1000 kg of concrete and the table frames were made in collaboration with local metal manufacturing companies.
