Libby’s&Bakery a 140 sqm Bistro combined with Bakery and Gelateria (ice cream shop) in a quiet Tel Aviv neighborhood. It’s located in a small commercial center. The inspiration for the design comes from the atmosphere of this peaceful neighborhood surrounded by oak trees in the heart of the city’s hectic vibes. This contrast influenced the pallet of materials, colors and textures chosen by the designer Keren Offner.
A soft color palette was chosen based on touches of yellow. Black and simple looking tables emphasize a wall covered with wood. Wooden chairs upholstered with different tons of gray contribute to the relaxed yet urban atmosphere. Texture of slots are visible in the concrete floor and up on the wooden walls and repeating on the sofa’s upholstery.
The offbeat round lightings glow in a warm and inviting ton. The outdoor sitting area is furnished with seats and sofas leading towards two interior spaces: one dedicated for the bistro where light meals and breakfast are served and the other for the sweet bakery and ice cream boutique which offers pastries, breads and coffee ‘to go’.
In OK-Design studio we work on a various projects such as privet houses, luxury apartment, restaurants and commercial spaces. I believe that every design decision, detail, material and color must have a meaning. And that is what builds the designer identity and unique signature.
