Step Inside ‘Truth,’ a Steampunk Coffee Shop in Cape Town, South Africa | Colossal

We are huge fans of Colossal. Rightly so, this week they’ve done it again by featuring a spread on Truth – a coffee shop in South Africa.

This is just a sampling of Heldane Martins designs photographed by Shanna Jones (via Yatzer).

Every inch of the coffee shop is packed with visual candy from large saw-blade tabletops to beautiful overstuffed booths and an ornate array of coffee making equipment that looks absurdly complex, almost like interior of a World War 2 submarine. If that wasn’t enough, Martin also crammed the space with vintage typewriters, Singer sewing machines, and old candlestick telephones. The design even extends to the restrooms which have exposed copper pipes, old extending mirrors and victorian tap levers.
