Colour-drenched coffee shop references “sunsets in the Tunisian desert”

Gradated lava stone flooring and suspended planet-like orbs feature at the Cafe Nuances coffee shop in Paris, which was created by
Dezeen Awards-nominated studio, Uchronia. Located on the city’s Rue de la Tremoille, the coffee shop is the third Uchronia-designed branch for Parisian coffee roaster, Cafe Nuances.


The one-room shop is fronted by a bright white facade in stark contrast to its vivid-hued interior. Studio founder, Julien Sebban, was informed by the landscapes he experienced on a recent trip to Tunisia when creating the cafe’s walls and lava stone flooring, which are decorated in sombre swathes of red, orange and blue. The coffee shop’s entrance is flanked by two bright red benches topped with metallic-effect fabric – one curved, and the other straight.


Low-slung interlocking tables, which can double as stools, can be reconfigured to suit customers’ needs. Uchronia placed a chunky stainless steel counter at the back of the intimate cafe, which is overlooked by deep orange lacquered shelving – a design element found in the other two Cafe Nuances’ outlets.
