Last year we pin-pointed the Everything Is A Coffee Bar trend, which involves increasing numbers of urban services and shops that merge with coffee bars. Fleuriste is yet another example that goes with this idea. Located in Helsinki’s design district, this comfortable place is two shops in one. The front of the space contains some fifteen seats for coffee drinkers, while the back accommodates a typical flower shop that offers modern bouquets and flower arrangements, as the Visit Helsinki blog explains.
Since coffee culture is getting hotter and hotter, lots of urban businesses experiment with adding coffee services to their shops. We promise to keep you updated about this trend. On our list are already this print shop/coffee bar, a launderette/coffee bar (that has even gone internationally by opening a branch in Amsterdam, and this bike repair shop/coffee bar. More tips, examples and suggestions are welcome!
Helsinki is 2012’s World Design Capital. Visit Finland invited us to come over to explore the city’s design treasures. The ‘Design in Helsinki’ series highlights the best projects, concepts and designs we came across during our visit.
