Sofa in the making
We used the existing material palette to blend in to the existing interior, and to benefit from the CNC mill in the basement. All the parts were made in house. I think plywood has a nice structure and gives assosiations to the maker activities going on in the rest of the house.
Most of the furniture were designed to be milled out from DIGS' maker space table-cnc right in the basement of the café. Designing for new production methods are always a cool challenge and opportunity!
The facade of the building is mostly large windows. This made the entrance easy to miss, as it didn't stand out enough from the rest. We decided to use the lines found in the logo and typeface of DIGS to make it more visible. Glued to both sides of the windows, it makes some interesting shadows by night, as well as a nice visual detail.
To ease the load of the personell working in the bar, we made a seperate self serve shelf for water, cutlery, napkins, etc.
