Longlist 2021

About Project

The history of the TAKAVA brand began with the owners’ desire to create a cafe where residents and tourists could try different coffee drinks as in the Crimean Tatarian tradition and, at the same time, a modern and bright place.

At this point, they asked help from the famous Ukrainian designers of the studio YUDIN Design who quickly found the name and then developed different types of logos in which the letter A is reproduced as a traditional pot for preparing coffee. The cezve, the traditional Turkish coffee maker, also formed the basis of other designers’ decisions regarding the interiors: rough and “toasted” textures, caramel nuances and notes of bitter but velvety coffee.

The new bar surprises with its harmonious architectural organization and a mix of styles: industrial in modern design; loft in open ventilation paths, the raw concrete ceiling decorated with micro-cement walls; minimalist in furnishing.
Modern tubular LED lamps illuminate supports and partitions with total and partial light, producing the effect of the color that flows into the institution.

The tubular partitions make this place delicate and divide it into different areas: You can sit at the bar, at one of the long tables or in a more secluded area, without feeling closed in any of the rooms.
Another advantage: the designers have provided several points for charging smartphones and other devices.

At TAKAVA 2.0, the lighting consists of the Copper Cezve reminiscent of the traditional Turkish coffeepot and the Chemex glass suspension, transformed into a lamp by the designers of YUDIN Design.
