Clay tiles are used heavily in the design of this modern coffee shop.

Architecture and interior designers Concentrico has recently completed Kali Coffee, a modern cafe in San Pedro Garza Garcia, Mexico, that uses clay tiles throughout its design.

While thinking about the coffee producers in the rural areas around Chiapas, Mexico, the designers were inspired by their homes which are constructed with handmade clay tiles on the roofs.

The handmade clay tiles were chosen as a critical design element in the coffee shop’s interior. This brings a little bit of the coffee producers’ life into the cafe and offers a unique and warm texture that will function as an ambiance trademark for the brand, Kali Coffee Roasters.

The clay tile walls and the lattice design command attention, while their curvature and material properties help absorb and deflect sound waves to help with the acoustics within the coffee shop.
