function horeca, renovation
contributed by triiije

Occupying the former warehouse in the central historic palace in Ljubljana, Lolita gives a tribute to a tradition of cafes. Huge historic windows of the space enable constant day and night communication with the pedestrian zone by the river and fill the interior with enormous amounts of light. And it is the light that illuminates the partnership of spatolato and roughly painted brick wall (showing the historic entrance to the house), gives power to cafe icon Thonet No. 214 (and witty 214K) dancing around Nika Zupanc sofas and follows numerous textiles jumping from the wall to the swing bench and back to the wall panels. The height of more than five meters is characterised by two opposing planes. Parquet floor painted and set in carpet like pattern and the ceiling with a huge unique image that characterises the space the most. From allegora of Venera and Apolon to historic napkin »kotiljon« with designer's self portrait (!) and a detail of Gustav Dore »Creation of Eve«.
