Wes Anderson’s reach is far and wide, traveling over oceans and continents to the city of Chengdu in China, where a cafe was actually inspired by the director’s minimalist aesthetics.
Designed by Melbourne studio Biasol, The Budapest Cafe transports its clients into a calm, pastel-hued oasis that puts as much importance on design as it does on coffee. “The Budapest Café is designed to feel feminine and fun, and layers, elevations and surprising design features encourage customers to explore and physically engage with the space,” says the studio. “The concept, colors and details continue through the branding, which is integrated into the design of the café to contribute to the imaginative and evocative space.”
