Concept
Lolita is the latest fruit of long term collaboration between architectural office Trije arhitekti and Kaval Group. Occupying the former warehouse in the central historic palace in Ljubljana, Lolita gives a tribute to a tradition of cafes and the richness of living on the crossroad where one listens to a variety of »truths« while brewing one’s own at the same time.

Huge historic windows enable constant day and night communication with the pedestrian zone by the river and fill the interior with enormous amounts of light. And it is the light that illuminates the partnership of spatolato and roughly painted brick wall (showing the historic entrance to the house), gives power to cafe icon Thonet No. 214 (and witty 214K) dancing around Nika Zupanc sofas and follows numerous textiles jumping from the wall to the swing bench and back to the wall panels.
