Architects pair soft colors with copper, gold and silver accents in Fiocas’ cake shop in Sao Paulo

The owners of Sao Paulo-based Fiocas’ cake shop has recently tasked Zemel Arquitetos and Chalabi Arquitetos to design the interior of their first location.

“For Fiocas’ cake shop first store we created its identity through the inspiration of glass domes shape that covers the cakes as small edible jewels. For this purpose, all the internal walls of this narrow 700 sq ft property were removed, resulting in a 9 ft wide tunnel built in drywall. The colors are soft referring to the ingredients and the red fruits used as materials in the manufacturing of the cakes. To emphasize the furniture we use metallic melamine: copper, gold and silver and as a counterpoint we use blended fabrics that bring warmth. A blue colored hydraulic tile was used on the floor to bring the brand identity to the interior of the store. The lighting is all indirect in order to highlight the arch, and leave a cozy atmosphere. Pendants were used only at the counter to highlight the products for sale, also highlighted on the shelf with dedicated led strips for each,” explained Zemel Arquiteots
