Raw Trader is a specialty raw dessert bar in Melbourne CBD specialising in all things vegan, organic, paleo, gluten free, dairy free and sugar free.
Studio Y’s new design for Raw Trader combines raw and contemporary style. The interior fit-out is the ideal backdrop for showcasing the produce while stimulating the senses. All design elements were carefully considered and layered to reveal a delicious celebration.
Studio Y has crafted a clever layered design with plenty of tactile elements, the space is given a perfect industrial, raw look and feel. Textual wallpaper coats black wall panels and a crate wall made from rustic timber doubles as shelves for fish bowl plants. Pendant lights made from used coffee beans hang from shelves and tables are set between stools upholstered with coffee bean sacks, that further enhance the raw aesthetic.
An urban retreat in the busy city scape, Raw Trader is a perfect spot for a sweet treat without the guilt.
Drainage is often the forgotten workhorse of the building and design function. Yet drainage maintains a simple albeit vital purpose.
