Midiya is a café in the centre of Vladivostok. Its area is 140 square meters.The main idea was to create something unique in everything, from the name of the cafe to the interior design and the menu. Midiya means a mussel, it’s an unusual name for a cafe, influenced by its location near the sea. All the coffee drinks recipes also emphasize the uniqueness of a local product. We tried to avoid clichéd coffee and color associations in the design. Midiya has all the shades of a pearl shell. We used lots of reflective surfaces in the interior: brass, mirror, steel, dichroic glass…The lamps over the group of high tables are in the shape of giant mussels. One of the ascents in the interior is a large collage, located directly opposite the entrance.
