Tokyo Baby Cafe

NONZEN Team 都市 City

东京表参道的宝贝咖啡馆——Tokyo Baby Cafe,由日本设计师 nendo设计工作室全力打造,专为有7岁以下小朋友的家庭开设。进入咖啡馆内,米白色的空间让人倍感温馨,将门外的喧嚣隔开。再往里走,能看到一个中心游戏室,给人的感觉就好像一间放大的儿童房,一侧的墙面立有书架,上面摆放着各种儿童图书。而在另一侧的墙上,分布着大大小小各种虚拟的门窗,最多的要数白色的长桌,每张桌子底下暗藏着小孩子们喜欢的涂鸦。而最引人注目的是那张巨大无比的浅蓝色沙发,可以同时容纳十多个小朋友在上面玩耍。


Designed by nendo, Tokyo Baby Cafe is a ‘parent and child cafe’ on Tokyo’s Omotesando, for parents to enjoy being out with small children without worry about those around them. The cafe is fully stocked with picture books and toys, and includes a playroom, private rooms and separate spaces for nursing and changing diapers. Wide aisles make it easy to move around with a stroller, and light switches and door handles are placed high up to keep children from using them.

The cafe is designed to be enjoyed by two very different sizes of users, ‘parents’ and ‘small children’, so the interior plays on this difference in scale. They also see the world through different eyes. Take a table: adults live their lives aware of tabletops, and the things placed on top of them.

But children see the table’s underside. A table’s legs can look like pillars, and the reverse of the tabletop is like a roof. The cafe’s ‘absolutely huge’ and ‘absolutely tiny’ furnishings take advantage of these two perspectives, the adult’s and the child’s.

A nursing sofa becomes a playroom when blown up on a massive scale, and a diaper changing table when shrunk to minuscule proportions. Big windows pair with small ones, and big lightbulbs with small ones. The floorboards vary in size, and the undersides of tables, where parents eyes don’t reach, hide pictures of parent and baby animals. In fact, ‘parents and children’ can be found all around the cafe, ready for their parent and child visitors.
