Cabaret Voltaire. The Gaslight. Café Wha? These and many other places, some intimate, others expansive, have all found a place in history as centers of action, the hubs around which movements, be they large or small, swirled. From the Dadas to the Lost Generation, the Beats, and beyond, cafés have been an inspirational model for individual expression and community creativity.
The power of the café and the mobility of ideas and ideologies as well as the ability to bring two people together to fall in love, to serve as a meeting point for conversation (or even revolution!)—is as undeniable as it is universal, and it has greatly influenced the way Maglianero is designed.
