Yaffa is a minimalist restaurant interior located in Copenhagen, Denmark, designed by Frama. In close collaboration with its commissioners, the mediterranean restaurant has been transformed from a concrete basement into a warm, inviting and relaxed eatery. Built-in furniture and vintage pieces have been crafted and allocated to the space per Frama’s aesthetics. Noted by a use of contrasts, it is to be observed in the entirety of the elongated restaurant space. A combination of different types of seating allows for the division of spaces within the irregular plan which allows for large parties, individual guests, and more intimate dinners.
The interior element elements provide a fresh take on traditional materials such as custom mixed terrazzo, traditional Harrogate tiling, sandblasted marble and Douglas Fir. Fitting along with this twist on the tradition, be-spoke opal glass globes in varying sizes dot the ceiling, and custom design stainless steel sconces contrast to vintage glass compose the wall lighting. The restaurant’s centerpiece is the bar counter. Assembled by individually shaped micro-cement pieces, each have been painted with custom mixed colors; making of a muted color palette is resemblant to the terrazzo blend customized for the space. The bar counter proudly greets the restaurant’s visitors upon arrival and accompanies them whilst awaiting to be seated; as any warm and welcoming host would do.
