Slowpoke Espresso, Melbourne
Slowpoke is a new cafe in Fitzroy, Melbourne designed by French-born, Melbourne-based designer Sasufi. The focal point of the bright and airy interior is a 12m wall clad with off-cuts of reused timber sourced from local furniture designers. Tables are also constructed of recycled wood, this time flooring and they are complemented with classic white chairs.
The space is completed with quirky touches such as vintage art and understated flower and herb arrangements in antique glassware. The character of the cafe is carried through to the last detail with even business cards being made of hand cut recycled card and signage custom made using flea market finds.
