These copper pipes, gears and steel railings are not from the interior of an ironclad battleship or WWI factory – they‘re part of the brilliant interior steampunk design of Truth Coffee‘s cafe in Cape Town.
The idea works in part because the coffee equipment used by Truth Coffee, with its various pipes and levers, already lends itself to a steampunk aesthetic. The cafe features authentic elements and accents like old bookcases, candlestick telephones, vintage typewriters, gas-masks and other gizmos and gadgets. Even the staff pictured wear popular steampunk elements like leather aprons, top-hats and goggles.
The interior design was dreamed up together with interior designer Haldane Martin, who was approached by Truth Coffee to design a cafe in keeping with their re-branding efforts. With cafes that look this much fun, I‘d say they‘re doing a good job!
