Northstar Cafè

The Northstar Cafè in Columbus, Ohio, was realized to the designs of the architect Andrew Rosenthal of the Gieseke Rosenthal Architecture+Design Studio: an enormous window instigates an intriguing dialogue between interior and exterior, while natural wood and porcelain stoneware are cleverly combined in the large rooms. A chromatic play between the Grey colour of the Format collection and the warm shades chosen for the decorations and ceiling results in very characteristic spacious and elegant settings. The designer, winner with this project of a special mention at the Design Competition of Coverings 2008, realized scenographic walls with sinuous curved lines using the strip tiles mosaic in the Format Grey colour, making the atmosphere even more unusual and suggestive.
