For the just opened Robusta Espresso Bar + Cafe in downtown Manhattan, custom designed and cast concrete modules create the service area’s undulating form. The images above show a slice of the process from mock-ups to final casting. Vertical ribs were cast on the face of the panels which were then painted with a single color from one direction. This creates a gradual shift between colors as a passerby or customer proceeds around the space. You can read about and see more of Robusta here.
A special thanks to Lavada, Inc. for all their input and effort.
