Design Consumption Vol 3: Shot Tower Coffee
If you’re following the coffee shop explosion that has been happening in the city since last fall, you might have noticed the design influence Shot Tower has had across the city. Beaming with natural light, white oak hardwood floors, reclaimed white pine on the side of the bar, chestnut counter-tops, up-cycled blue glass, 1920’s subway tile and custom lighting designs, the vintage industrial interior design makes it one of the most beautiful coffee shops in the city.
One of my favorite coffee shops in Philly, it really was pioneering design-wise. It moved away from that dark and dingy coffee shop look we’d gotten used to and left behind the very corporate looking furniture of the likes of Starbucks to make something more organic. I love all the plants it has too, it’s not something you really see in coffee shops.
