"Truth" - Steampunk inspired coffee house by Haldane Martin
If Jules Vern would own a coffee shop I imagine it would look just like this. Steam powered roaster in the center and multitudes of gadgetry and exposed piping, plus display dedicated to Vern's worn-out typewriters - like fallen victims of his imaginative writing. Well, this coffee house was created by visionaries no less imaginative and inspiring in their own rank.
Idea behind "steampunk" theme for the coffee house was presented to owners by designer Haldane Martin, and they embraced it fully, even manufacturing some of the gadgetry themselves.
Haldane Martin considered by some one of the most talented designers of South Africa started as a furniture designer and since 2002 incorporated interior design in to his creative disciplines. His firm manufactured all the furnishings for the space. Photography by Shanna Jones.
