The Az W Café Restaurant is closed until further notice. We look forward to welcoming you here again soon!
French architects Anne Lacaton and Jean Philippe Vassal, whose philosophy of building is based on the intelligent use of low-cost materials, were responsible for the design and execution of the Az W Café Restaurant. The pattern of the ceiling tiles was designed especially for this space by Turkish artist Asiye Kolbai-Kafalier in collaboration with the architects and was produced in Istanbul.
“We had this idea of a Turkish café in which you can sit very comfortably and chat for hours. We were confronted with a brick vault and the project idea was simply to hang a ‘firmament’ in this space. This firmament was made in ceramic, with Oriental tiles.” (Anne Lacaton)
