A space for consuming food and drinks inside shops has been a trend for a while now, a trend giving added value to retail space. City people are used to eat food they buy immediately, usually for breakfast or lunch.
bio&bio eco shops lately also incorporate a cafe in all their new shops which Brigada has planned as part of their retail concept during the rebranding.
In bio&bio shops, in Zagreb’s Octagon or Super Konzum Radnička for example, you can now eat your healthy sandwich, cake, vegan delights from Zrno eco estate, drink a freshly prepared superfood smoothie or organically grown coffee.
The cafe is always at the entrance, opening up to the street, attracting the passers by. As any other shop segment, like the bakery or the cosmetic department, this one is also differentiated with its design. For example dark and roughly trimmed wood and steel, subway tiles and lowered lighting were used. Credits for the spatial and functional organization of the space and counter design go to Brigada as well.
