Giovane Caffè: A Redesign Project with Lightform

June 27, 2023

Check out Giovane Caffè in Vancouver, a project by WAO Waissbluth Architecture, founded by award-winning architect, Nicholas Waissbluth.

Working with the cafe’s concept of offering a combination of classic Italian drinks and modern iterations that will “tempt even the strictest of espresso purists,” the resulting space is a clean-lined contemporary environment, filled with timelessly warm joinery and plenty of natural light.

The cherry on top: Lightform especially love the cluster of Lámina Suspensions from Santa & Cole that hang above the cafe’s seating area. Originally designed by Antoni Arola, the Lámina emits diffused, ambient lighting through its clean lines and an elegantly curved shade, seamlessly fitting into the design team’s vision.
