Chocolate Bar by Roma Skuza & Bogna Polanska
by Ted Savage / October 1, 2012
Indulge your chocolate love on a fully immersive level is effectively the idea behind the Chocolate Bar by bro.Kat, a tiny cafe in Opole, Poland, with a simple walls-dripping-chocolate theme, and a complementarily minimal palette of brown, black, and cream.

The mezzanine adds area. The hanging lights are... droplets of milk. Making best use of urban space is a specialty of this Polish architect-design team.


Says bro.Kat, "Chocolate bar is situated in a baroque tenement house and entered through a vestibule. Due to limited area of the venue, i.e. approx. 30m², it was impossible to place a bar, a shop and a kitchen on the same level. However, thanks to a high ceiling of the bar a mezzanine was built and thus, the space was enlarged."


"A counter, a kitchen, toilets and utility rooms were placed in a square of chocolate and a private space with tables was placed above them. Customer space is brightly coloured whereas service part reflects the 'dark chocolate'."


"'Chocolate' melting on the walls is the only embellishment of the room and 'milk drops' dripping from the ceiling are actually lamps." More at bro.Kat.
