Thomas Klein designs new Dubai café
Dubai, February 8, 2012
Thomas Klein International (TKI), the Dubai-based restaurant consultants, and their Chicago architectural office PS Studio, have completed the design concept of Public, a new café located at Jumeirah Lakes Towers in Dubai.
“Public will cater to the residents and businesses in the JLT community, and will be open for lunch and breakfast,” said Daniel During, principal and managing director of Thomas Klein International.
“The café will serve freshly baked cakes and breads, as well as a selection of healthy salads and sandwiches.”
Paula Palombo, PS Studio Principal said, “Even though Public is designed as a public venue, it aims to give the patrons a homey feeling. Arm chairs and wall lights with side tables invite patrons for a longer stay, and a magazine wall is designed to allow people to sit and read while looking at those who come and go.”
“We used a very a simple and minimalist design for the interior, using light wood for the counters as well as the furniture, combined with grey slate walls, as well as a light-hued concrete floor, which provides subtle combinations of roughness, smoothness and softness,” added Palombo.
Public, located in Lake View Tower 1 in Jumeirah Lakes Towers, is owned by Greek investor, Theodore Zaravinos, and is due to open in April. – TradeArabia News Service
