Very Small Cafes & Restaurants by John Stones

Following on from LKP's successful books Micro: Very Small Buidlings, by Ruth Slavid, and Very Small Shops, John Stones turns his attention to eating establishments, focusing on food outlets where there is just enough space to eat. Small food outlets are enjoying an upsurge in the quality of food served and in their eye-catching design. In many of these bijou ventures, especially where food is sold to take away, the graphics, brand identity and packaging are just as important as the interior. All of the establishments featured measure less than 150 square metres indeed, many are much smaller than that so the designers must make a big impact with very little space. Very Small Cafes and Restaurants features around 40 projects from around the world by such designers as Wonderwall, Marti Guixe, Thomas Heatherwick and Ippolito Fleitz Group. Projects are grouped by type of outlet: pizzerias, noodle bars, cafes and coffee shops, ice-cream parlours and delicatessens. This book will be inspirational for designers faced with the challenge of a tiny cafe or restaurant, as well as for independent food retailers looking for fresh new ways to present their product.
