Voice of Coffee / Yusuke Seki

The interior of a former barber shop turned into “Voice of Coffee” shop in Kobe, Japan by design studio Yusuke Seki

Almost all of the structural elements were left as they were found during the demolition process. As studio’s Mamie Nishida says: “We are not interested in using 100 per cent new materials…Our focus is on the coexistence of past and future in contemporary projects.”

” Beyond the edge of the world there’s a space where emptiness and substance neatly overlap, where past and future form a continuous, endless loop. And, hovering about, there are signs no one has ever read, chords no one has ever heard. ”

Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore
