TAKAVA Coffee-Buffet is an atmospheric coffee shop in the centre of Kyiv, the brand, the interior
and exterior of which were created by designers Aleksandr and Vladimir Yudin.
Like any script or book, TAKAVA declares itself already in the title. When you hear it, you think about the best coffee you seek in the morning, which will fix all thoughts and is so tasty and fragrant that you want to share with your friends or immerse yourself in it with your dreams. The logo of the coffee shop was rounded in the shape of a Turkish cezve.
TAKAVA Coffee-Buffet design encounters velvet impressions, which reveal more and more a rich taste, along with the contemplation of individual details. So, the designers deliberately chose for the design of the cafe materials that create barely perceptible an aged effect: light wood and the same rustling plaster, red brick and burning copper.
Fixtures in the form of cezve helped the designers to create the lighting together with the Lviv workshop PikArt Lights. Bulbs are hidden not only in copper vessels, but also in the niches around. Such a capsule distribution of light helped Aleksandr and Vladimir Yudin to harmonize the daylight, coming from the two-story front window, with the interior. In the evening, the atmosphere of TAKAVA Coffee-Buffet becomes completely different, as daytime haze changes the lights of the night city. To create the effect of open heat, which prepares the Turkish coffee, designers have illuminated a logo that adorns the brick wall.
The soft textures in the interior are represented by velvet wall panels, which in the form resembled a cezve. The same shape can be found in the design of round puffs of different colours. Coffee, red and even turquoise shades inspire associations with an oriental coffee shop. Tables, like all other furniture, were designed by YUDIN Product – their workshop that creates design furniture and accessories.
Both sides of the coffee tables are slanted, which again reminds the cezve. An experienced eye will see this symbol not only in the interior, but also in all the elements of the establishment of the institution that personalize TAKAVA as a brand.
In a friendly atmosphere that reminds people about the common preference, is created not only the aroma of coffee, but also organized a collection of vinyl and books in a high cabinet with niches.
Thanks to a thoughtful planning, it’s also nice to sit and look at the rhythm of the city. Coffee makers and retro connoisseurs will especially appreciate the legendary Victoria Arduino machine installed in the cafe, that has been preparing coffee for over a century, starting in 1905!
Particular attention is also paid to the exterior of the institution. The glass front door is part of a solid glass faсade that affects not only the illumination at different times of the day, already taken into account by Aleksandr and Vladimir Yudin, but also the interior of the institution, because one side of it is like a constantly moving picture, which opens an extraordinary view of the city centre.

The owners of the restaurant relied on the studio YUDIN Design to create an interior that would match the offerings of their cuisine – urban food (burgers, wings), sushi, Italian cuisine, kids menu. The customer already had a name ready – BERGAMOT. He wanted the Brothers Yudin to develop the naming, concept and identity, making this location a place where to spend time comfortably with the whole family; in other words – it was necessary to create a new restaurant brand for family people!
From the beginning Aleksandr and Vladimir Yudin realized that a restaurant with such a concept and Italian cuisine may be turned into an every day enjoyable place. So they offered a design solution so easy and intuitive that it seems that everything is familiar here, as if you have been visiting this establishment for many years!
The designers began working with the identity of the new restaurant brand. The name BERGAMOT proposed by the customer is easily pronounced by native speakers of any language, and is read in the same way as it is written! Moreover, Brothers Yudin found that Bergamot is a symbol of the Italian region Calabria, and decided to use it in some aesthetic way in the interior. The traditional landscapes of the cities in Calabria inspired the studio YUDIN Design to use a bright stained glass partition that complemented the minimalist light atmosphere in bright colours (aesthetics, corresponding to Japanese cuisine) and defined a play area for children. The logo and signboard in orange colours also derived from the “citrus name”. The logo is lined by the designers in such a way that one can see both citrus, sliced pizza, and a Japanese folding fan in it.
The designers decided to use red brick in the interior, decorating it with metal bars that resemble the traditional arches of the Italian architecture, the Japanese folding fan and citrus slices. The minimalist interior elements were used by the architects in order to honour the Japanese cuisine in the establishment. All work was done easily, which is typical for the studio YUDIN Design. One element after another helped Vladimir and Aleksandr to create an integral concept of the place and brand BERGAMOT. Here you feel like in a comfortable summer patio. Grid decoration is also used on the restaurant’s half-closed terrace, where also a simple geometrical grid was applied, used here also as shelves for flowers.
In general, the whole restaurant room is enough spacious. There are no corners, corridors or special zones, but everything is in sight. Therefore, guests feel here at home. Only for children there’s a game zone near the stained glass partition, and even it is completely open to the public. Parents can communicate with each other and, at the same time, watch their child in the playroom. The summer terrace also has a simple structure as a gallery.
Eclectic styles manifest themselves in the walls and in the decorated moldings (clear hints of neoclassical), while the concrete ceilings are made in the industrial style. All stations for waiters and bar are decorated with white tiles (minimalism) and, all over it, coloured decor elements reminiscent of Calabria and Italy in general: bright chairs and sofas, a red wood-burning pizza oven, natural flowers!
As always, the studio YUDIN Design helped to complete the restaurant lighting with a huge central chandelier, resembling a planetary orbit, round ceiling and wall lamps. The design of this collection of lamps was developed specifically for BERGAMOT restaurant in the workshop YUDIN Product, while the products were realized in the famous Lviv manufactory PikArt Lights. The manufacturing technology of the main chandelier is not simple itself, since it combines curved metal rods of different lengths.
The designers worked with a spacious bathroom, in which there is a also a changing table. For the Wc doors, Aleksandr and Vladimir portrayed the lady and gentlemen in the form of citrus slices, the first representing the figure a woman in a long dress, the second is identical to the traditional male tuxedo. The massive entrance doors of the restaurant have handles in the form of two slices.
