Madrid café embraces the flat aesthetic.

thumbnail"Let there be light" could very well be the mantra for a very talented artistic trio known as (fos).

Eleni Karpatsi, Susana Piquer and Julio Calvo make up this multidisciplinary team with interest in architecture, interior design, art direction and graphic design.

Their first ephemeral installation by the same name, (fos), is "a visual game between perspective and colored volumes."

Outside Raven, a vegan eatery in Madrid, these exceptional creatives used yellow tape, painted décor items, pineapples and a lamp to create the appearance of an illuminated property that covers both vertical and horizontal surfaces.

Reminiscent of Van Gogh's famous Café Terrace on the Place du Forum, Arles, at Night, the installation calls to mind the current trend for the flat aesthetic.







Does the flat aesthetic lend itself to anything but web sites? Would this installation entice you into the café? Let us know in the comments.
