Cafe GyprocKortrijk, Belgium
Inspired by the traditional “café terrasse”, Café Gyproc translates the simple Latin joy of life and the importance of bringing people together. Julien and Paul wanted to bring this atmosphere and sense of community into the busy alleys of the Biennale Interieur 2018.
The architecture of Café Gyproc is envisioned as an archetype of the communal place. The large regular window openings, the colorful sun-blinds, the center bar, and bistro chairs facing the streets will immediately tell the wanderer what this place is about.
Multicolor sun-blinds made from Kvadrat textiles dress the sober façade. The visitors will be served “pistolets”, a savory traditional Belgian round bread stuffed with various fillings. Seated at the terrace on bistro furniture from Massproductions and under a smooth glow of iconic lights manufactured by Flos.
