Intaglio Design Studio has recently completed a contemporary all-day cafe design named ‘Offline Cafe 3.0’ for the young target audience that seeks to add yet another glistening feature to the glorious city- Lucknow; but with a touch of quirk. Inaugurated post the lockdown in September 2020, this cafe serves its users with a facet of Lucknow that is innovative, fresh and unique. Ar. Chinmay Ajmani - the principal designer of the studio, conceptualised the entire scheme as a blend of pop and mute colours, bold graffiti, mood lighting and trending photo corners for the millennial generation. Read on SURFACES REPORTER (SR) to know the design details of this beautiful cafe:

In his own words, “Vibrant shades and quirky graphics, were definitely the first thing on our minds when we laid out the brief as design elements. Along with this, we implemented the final layout with an omnipresent layer of greens, as a part of the ceiling and the accentuating aspects, to subtly inculcate the nuance of nature as well!”
Dine in Style
The inception of this cafe is marked by a main dining area dipped in burgundy furnishing and playful components, accessible through a strip lighted foyer.
With a wide range of seating options, set against glazed doors and ‘au-courant’ artwork, this space serves its users with a bit more than just tangy cocktails. Hanging planters combined with singular classic bulb lighting, completes the requisite ambiance.
Eye-catching Corner Bar
On delving further, a corner bar with an adjoint pool table quickly catches the glimpse. While the latter seamlessly merges with the rest of the dining, owing to its ambient overhead lighting and neon signage, the former provides a quaint yet exclusive vibe for a solo euphoric moment.
Designed with MDF fluting and a grey marble top, the final touch of a tin tiled ceiling, ties this bar-zone in one disparate yet chic knot. The final yet most alluring segment of this design has to be approached through a series of glass interfaces, placed to provide a sneak into the elegant horizon.
Stunning Rooftop Dining
Created with artificial grass flooring, the distinct change of space can easily be felt from the first footstep shift of grey to green.
From the hanging lanterns to the blue furnishing under a shade of creeping bougainvillea, this terrace dining is sure to mesmerise the incoming users with its vitality and view.
A special amphitheatre seating, laid out one end of the terrace, showcases the designer’s prowess to present the patrons of the cafe; with an aura that is toned to the apt level of casual and a serene setting to bask in the sunset.
While traditions and culture might be what constitutes the inner core of Lucknow, Offline Cafe 3.0, surely deserves its place around the mantle.
