Filli café is a popular tea shop chain originating from Dubai located in Dubai City Walk, one of the most sought-after lifestyle malls in the Middle East.
The design of the cafe is inspired by the existing storefront, which features a British main street aesthetic, with seating zones wrapped around a central core that includes the kitchen and service counter. The color palette is kept simple, with wenge wood furniture and black painted mill work, walls clad with matte white subway tiles, and touches of copper highlights. The brand color of Filli Select is also copper, adding a touch of class to the decor.
The ceiling is painted white and kept open, showcasing all the mechanical services and providing a nice contrast to the orderly decor below. Linear strip lights above the service counter define the zone and antique ceiling fans further enhance the ambiance.
The exterior seating area is designed as an extension of the interior spaces, with black outdoor furniture creating a seamless flow between the two spaces.
