Bulgaria’s Optically Illusory Graffiti Café


Creatively punching way above the weight of the average hotel bar, the Graffiti Café installation is a lavish addition to the Graffit Gallery boutique hotel in Varna, Bulgaria.

Designed by Bulgarian interior design practice Studio Mode, the space entices passing pedestrians by offering a direct view of its glamorous interiors. The unusual ceilings and columns, created from striated wood, appear to pulsate like a spatial optical illusion.

Separated into two distinct zones, the front of the café acts as an extension of the ultra-modern façade and lobby area, while a raised section towards the back offers a pocket of privacy.

All-white floors, furniture and walls, punctuated by green plant life and flashes of black, give an overall sophistication to the interior styling.
