Another espresso bar hits the streets of Soho, New York. Studio Vural Principal Selim Vuram said the design process started with an accidental find during demolition. A photograph in the rubble of a blue man playing a flute to a woman is what started it. It was the Indian God Krishna, playing his flute as a gesture of love and harmony to his lover.
“Iconic Cafe is an architectural reflection on Krishna & Radha’s timeless story adapted to NYC. We fused the richness of pattern & color in Indian art with cool, disruptive modernity of New York. Our project is a well calibrated blend of dynamic forms, 90 year old wood joists, wax finished oak paneling and amazing Mexican tiles (Indian too costly) that will take you to a multi-cultural consciousness in your digitized coffee break.”
Iconic Café introduces Indian coffee, roasted on site, as well as vegan sandwiches.
