The Standard Café

Montréal, Canada

Materiality of the 4th Wave Café


Montréal, Canada, 2017-03-03 -

Jean de Lessard - Designers Créatifs has designed for Westmount’s café The Standard, a space of symmetry where the minimalistic narrative blends in subtly with the sophisticated look of a period café, thus redefining the codes of such a venue where varieties of Grand Cru coffee and gourmet pastries are served. 


After an intense drawing phase, as a result, the design is focused on the straight line, the balance of proportions and the alignment of the architectural elements with the brass finish wall profiles. These profiles are creating the illusion of wainscoting and the false beams of the ceiling, that of caissons. Such a subterfuge brings a sense of spaciousness and classicism to the small café. Positioning of the custom furniture including the seemingly free-floating pastry showcase is keeping with the notions of horizontality and verticality. There is also similarity in the degree of angularity that both the armrests of the armchairs and the coffee tables present. For an even more stylish effect, a pony hair-like fabric has been mixed with the ever classic herringbone pattern of the fabric on the low-legged armchairs and that of the hickory floor.


In this deep ebony shell at the heart of which stark lighting enhances the luster of brass, the interior design firm wanted to shake the prevailing order a bit; the slight displacement of the imposing white quartz worktop, a strong element in the project, thus gives rhythm to this refined place smoothly.
