Star Wars: Is Melbourne the New Coffee Bar Capital?

July 22, 2013

Melbourne coffee maestro Luke Mutton of Dead Man Espresso recently opened a new venture called Common Galaxia, redefining the concept of the bespoke coffee bar. The interiors were designed by Mutton’s company Sunkland in collaboration with Justin Lamont of Life Space Journey, who created all the fittings: the lighting, tables, chairs, trolleys, shelving, cutlery holders, even the sink. (Mutton also notes, “The builder was Fido Projects, who also had much input in the design.”) The result is a rugged yet refined space featuring a mix of materials: raw steel, untanned leather chairs, copper coffee canisters, plus pastel powder-coated fixtures and fittings. For more, go to Common Galaxia.
