Kiev-based designers Lera Brumina and Artem Trigubchak teamed up to create Breadway bakery and café. The duo used a palette of contrasting colours to create clashing moments that accentuate the bakery’s different areas.

The space is visually divided into three parts, each defined by its functional requirements: a small and subdued take-away space is painted in deep blue; a waiting area, enclosed as a pink box in the centre of the space; and the seating area, clad in glossy grey tiles, where guests can enjoy a pastry and a coffee.

Top: The fit-out contrasts clashing colours, hard and soft materials and geometric shapes to create unexpected characterful twists that immerse visitors in the space. | Middle: The interior’s bright and catchy aesthetic is based on simple geometric shapes, from the coral-pink arched seating to the custom-made pink chandeliers which emphasize the ceiling height. | Bottom: Orange tiles contrast against playful pink grout.

The light and airy interior space is accentuated by a high ceiling which is painted white to emphasise the custom-made pink chandelier and the colourful built-in furniture which has been designed specifically for the project. Glossy titles reflect and emphasize the natural light coming through high windows. ‘The bright and catchy aesthetics are based on strict and simple shapes and volumes,’ say the designers. Decorated with an artistic flair comparable to American Pop aesthetics, the fit-out makes up a characterful space.
