An Art Deco-style confectionery designed by Hugon Kowalski from the UGO Architecture studio has been opened in the Old Market Square in Opole. Thick velour curtains play an important role in its interior inspired by cafés from the early 20th century and the theatre.
The interior is dominated by three colours: gold (brass counter, lamps and details), pink (the colour of the floor and terrazzo panels on the counter front) and emerald green on numerous opulently draped curtains. The impressive burl wood chest of drawers is a clear reference to Art Deco.
The curtain is a prevalent motif in the café: it is present in its visual identity, decorates the counter, and reveals the mastery of confectioners working behind the glass wall to the lovers of sweets. The latter element of the interior as well as all other curtains in the café are made from the Charles fabric, colour Garden 45, which warms the interior and muffles the sounds coming from the confectionery workshop. It also adds mystery to the interior and regulates the amount of daylight entering through the windows.
Charles is a part of the Charleston collection. It comes in 85 colours and is suitable for both decorative and upholstery applications, which makes it a popular choice in all kinds of public and private interiors.
Fabric used in the project:
Charles is a velour upholstery fabric with a high resistance to abrasion (90 000 Martindale cycles). It is available in a wide spectrum of colours from strong, warm tones of brown, red and orange to cooler blues and greys. It is recommended for modern interiors. The fabric has a protective finish and is easy to maintain – it can be either hand-washed or dry-cleaned.
