Liqui Group is a highly creative, multifaceted and award-winning British design practice, based in London, Brighton and Los Angeles. The accomplished interior design studio Liqui Group has completed its fourth coffee shop for Brew92, a Saudi Arabian-based speciality cafe and roastery.
The second shop located in Saudi Arabia’s capital Riyadh, the Palazzo is a coffee shop design of two halves – with one half of the walls, floors and ceiling being finished in black and the other in natural coloured wood. The design ties in with Brew92’s latest ‘Back to Basics’ approach which puts their specialty coffee at the heart of everything. The style aesthetic was followed through in the cafe interior with a long coffee bar design, making the ground floor of this two-storey coffee shop ideal for socialising around the coffee counter.
In keeping with Brew92’s other flagship coffee stores, Liqui has used its own furniture and lighting throughout this Riyadh shop - all pieces were designed and manufactured in Britain, using sustainable materials and combining traditional craftsmanship with modern innovation.
The cafe furniture used includes Milne Chairs and Studio Cafe Tables paired with the classic Work Lamps hanging above. These, along with other Liqui designed furniture, such as the new Shaw Shelves are all finished in a ‘black on black’ colourway which fits with the overall interior design. In addition, black Splice lights are suspended over the bar and across the ceiling creating a feature bespoke installation cascading down the stairwell. This leads visitors to explore the upstairs, where there is a more relaxed seating area using the Studio Easy Chairs in black leather with black frames as well as all black Fraser Sofas.
Brew92 coffee shops are in the vanguard of Saudi Arabia’s growing, modern coffee scene - one that provides an alternative to the traditional Arabic coffee culture. They are part of an increasingly visible third wave coffee movement, appealing to millennials and coffee connoisseurs alike. Liqui Group has forged a unique partnership with Brew92 and is extremely happy about its part in creating this new coffee revolution within Saudi Arabia.
