Okkio Caffe, Hồ Chí Minh – Vietnam


Okkio Caffe is a chain of coffee shops that has 2 branches in the market.
Vuong Gia Ve is an influential and inspiring director for the Okkio Caffe, so this design story was inspired by the movie “2046”, his film about the return train from the year 2046.

Based on this idea, the building’s façade is designed as train windows with iron bars as the highlight.
Furthermore, the ceiling inside is built up with the curved shape as the train’s one.
Moreover, the “frame in frame” is decorated with the idea of bringing natural light from the windows and ceilings directly onto the floor.

The highlights here, which are the counter and the ceiling system of the building, have been emphasized.
Along with the brand’s traditional materials such as old brick and copper, which create a cozy and warm environment as usual, other more modern materials such as the gradient effect of the paint and the style of the polyethylene ceiling have been introduced.

The color of the light will change differently at different times of the day, creating a special experience throughout the different hours of the day.
In the morning, it will be delighted by the natural light flowing down the side of the ceiling hole.

At night, Okkio will be warm, romantic and private for customers thanks to the light focused mainly on the corner of the bar.

If people get a chance to watch Okkio in the vibrant sunset, you will surely be struck by the peaceful red building with tons of light moving like a movie from the future going back to the past.
