ciclo, a cycle cafe
Being among the foremost cycle cafes to open in India, designing this new kind of space for a generation of cycle enthusiasts was an interesting challenge.
Three locations were planned with the flagship café-cum-store in Chennai. It is a unique blend of cycle-themed retail, service and café.
The design approach involved the use of cycles as a theme. Therefore, its various components were weaved into the design of the furniture and accessories, for which purpose, a cycle was fully dismantled for design inspiration. This led to some very interesting design solutions which have now become a signature in this segment. Being situated in Metros and catering to cosmopolitan patrons made it easier to accept and enjoy.
The overall ambience therein with rustic overtones all gel very well with the raw components of a cycle, giving it a hip and happening feel.
