Kunsthistorisches Museum Cafe Design Study

Vienna Cafe & Bistro Design

“Focus, definition: a central point, as of attraction, attention or activity; a point at which rays of light, heat, or other radiation meet after being refracted or reflected; the clear and sharply defined condition of an image; the position of a viewed object or the adjustment of an optical device necessary to produce a clear image.”

Kunsthistorisches Museum Cafe and Bistro

The focus of the Cafe is set in the center of the dome hall. To emphasize the outstanding center of the place and its characteristic setting, the whole design is oriented on the centerpiece. By arranging the furniture in the room a certain way, easy and direct access to the center and an excellent view down into the arrival hall and the restaurant is ensured.

What a great view

The very loose arrangement of furniture in circular segments zones the whole room as well as compressing the area simultaneously. One great eye-catcher is the unblocked view to the big square in front of the museum.

The bar is placed in the center and the staircase and functions as a worthy reception to all visitors this way. If needed the bar furniture can easily be converted into a buffet. Also, all the other furniture elements are flexible and can be displaced as required by rollers.

Just like the furniture also the mobile displays are arranged to segments of circles. They do not require a fixed power supply because of the use of batteries and can be set up anyplace in the room. Different heights of tables and chairs are one more zoning element in this design.

Room dividers and table bases are equipped with sound-absorbing materials to improve the acoustic in the dome hall. The partially upholstered furniture also contributes to that.

Classic, contemporary design

The colors of the design are aligned primarily to the colors of the exhibition rooms of the museum. Even the classic, contemporary design is perfectly suited to the establishment.

This design was made as a study and will not be built.
