Introduction

「“瑶·咖啡”是一个特别的作品,它关于造梦,家人,和爱。我不是设计师,而是造梦者。 ——设计师郑小馆」

广州越秀老区里,某个不起眼的街角,你可能会不期而遇“瑶·咖啡”。它是藏在老街深处的一抹白,微微探出钢板招牌,清清冷冷地用小篆书了“瑶”一字。如果略微粗心,你可能就此错过一个特别的咖啡馆,以及会为你特制咖啡的Mario。

Yao Café is a special work, about dream, family, and love. I’m not a designer, but a dream maker.

In some unimpressive corner at Yuexiu old district, Guangzhou, you may meet Yao Café suddenly. It hides in the deep and stretches its sign made of steel plate. On the sign, the character“瑶”was written in “Xiao Zhuan”, an ancient Chinese script. Without careful notice, you possibly miss such as special café, and Mario who will offer specific coffee for everyone.

设计师郑小馆说:将“瑶·咖啡”从理想搬进现实,经历了一波三折。我将这理解为“好事多磨”。细细磨砺的咖啡更香;经过时光磨砺的“瑶·咖啡”,更有温度和情怀。为了最大化呈现生活感,他采用最古朴原始的元素:白色+纯水泥。不论是天花裸露的面貌,还是白漆的外观,都最洁净地呈现自我,与周围格格不入。晚风拂过,风移影动,珊珊可爱。

Lauren Cheng, the designer said that, before bringing Yao Café into from dream into reality, we experienced ups and downs. And I take that as “The road to happiness is strewn with setbacks”. Coffee after fine grinding smells better. Yao Café that experiencing time has more temperature and emotions. To show life as much as possible, he utilized the most ancient and original factors, i.e., white and cement. Either the bare ceiling or the white appearance, shows their true face, which is different from the surrounding. When night wind flows, shadows move. Cute and poetical.

「为什么是“瑶”?」
「Why named “Yao”? 」

瑶,是店长Mario女儿的名字,是石之美者。女儿奴Mario的朋友圈,十有八九都是晒女儿。而Mario的妈妈钟爱咖啡,但总是只能喝速溶咖啡。为了让妈妈喝一杯好咖啡, Mario开始研习这种饮料。渐渐地,他从一无所知的小白变成咖啡的追梦者。在希腊语中“Kaweh”(咖啡)的意思是“力量与热情”,也许正因这种魔力,原本木讷少言的Mario变得侃侃而谈、甚至会给每个人配咖啡。后来,当萌生做个咖啡馆的念头时,他第一时间就想到了“瑶”。就这样,“瑶·咖啡”便应运而生了。

Yao, the name of Mario’s daughter, and a kind of jade. Almost Mario’s moments in Wechat is about his daughter. Mario’s mother likes coffee very much; however, often, she could drink instant coffee. To let his mother enjoy good coffee, Mario started to explore this beverage. Gradually, he became a dream-chaser from a novice. In Greek, Kaweh means power and passion. Maybe due to this magic power, Mario became conversable from reticent. Later on, when the idea to make a café came into his mind, he immediately thought about “Yao”. In this way, Yao Café came into being.

▼设计诞生,the birth of design

“瑶”字,凝结了Mario和上一代、下一代的情感。正如龙应台说的:

我慢慢地、慢慢地了解到,所谓父女母子一场,只不过意味着,你和他的缘分就是今生今世不断地在目送他的背影渐行渐远。你可以说:“孩子你慢慢来”,可是有时候,快快地“放手”或许也是必要的。我知道,这很难,难极了,但是如果你记得我们儿时的甜蜜时光……

如果时光不可逆,Mario想用“瑶·咖啡”来制造回忆。因这故事而动容的设计师,落笔作图时,也将温暖、热爱、家倾注其中。乍一看,这里十分粗粝冷淡,其实,设计师用灯光暖化这种“冷”,把暖意藏近了随处可见的灯光里。

The character 瑶 gathers the emotion between Mario and his mother, and his daughter. As what Long Yingtai, a famous Chinese writer wrote:

Gradually, I noticed that being parents and children only means that parents will spend their whole life watching children going far away. You can say: slowly. However, sometimes, let it go may be necessary. I know, it is difficult, extremely. But if you remember our sweet time in childhood…

If time is gone forever, Mario wants to retain memory by “Yao Café”. Touched by the story, Lauren input warmth, love, and passion into the design. At the first sight, you may think it is rough. In fact, the designer utilizes lights to warm up, and hide warmth behind the lights.

「初见瑶·咖啡」
「First Meet Yao Café」

如若你从外面的街角看去,会恍惚地以为那被光影圈着的所在,在周边古朴破落的掩映下,堪堪就是一块无暇美玉啊!没错,基于“瑶”这个keyword,郑小馆运用笔挺的光影萦绕咖啡馆,正如匠人在石头上精心切割出美玉一般。招牌是用4mm厚的钢板制成,深蓝为底,小篆一笔一划地写了“瑶”字。初见第一眼,你可能不知道“瑶”到底是什么。可它就是倔强孤傲地挺立着。那从秦始皇时期沿袭下来的小篆,以圆为主,圆起圆收,方中寓圆,圆中有方,使转圆活,富有奇趣。空间分割均衡和对称是篆书的独特魅力。不仅如此,设计师还精心处理了字体,将笔画向外拉,像味蕾得到满足的舌头。倘若你是清晨到访的,那你便会邂逅Mario的早餐。透过可开可闭的折叠窗,你可以看到脸圆圆的Mario正在小而精致的工作台忙碌。以纯手工的窗,敬纯手工匠人。

If looked from the corner, Yao Café is like a perfect jade surrounded by the shabby surroundings around. Lights and shadows circle the “jade”. Based on the keyword瑶, Lauren Cheng used straight lights to surround the café, just like an artisan cut a piece of jade from a stone. The shop sign is made by 4mm-thick steel plate, with dark blue as background. The character瑶was written in Xiao Zhuan, a kind of type passed down from the Emperor Qin period. Xiao Zhuan looks interesting and lively. It is typical for equal space division and symmetry. Moreover, the designer also processed the type sophisticatedly, by pulling the strokes out and making it like a content tongue.If you come in the early morning, you will meet Mario’s breakfast. Through the folding window, you can see Mario’s round face and he is working in his workbench. Hand-made windows respect craftsman.

「深入瑶·咖啡」
「Go deeply in Yao Café」

推门而入,上空的灯桥最为瞩目。蓝色木作,始于玻璃门、穿过会议室、路过洗手间、落脚于大厅、最后回归原点——门。灯桥的走向正如人生的起伏:随着时光流逝,人生阶段不断推进,当来到这一刻,薄积厚发的能量喷涌而出。倾泻而下的灯光就像迸发的能量,象征光明,让人看清当下,不迷失方向。

Open the door and your eyes will be caught by the light bridge. Along with the blue batten, the light starts from the glass door, across the meeting room and toilet, and arrives in the lobby, finally the starting point – door. The journey of the light bridge is like the ups and downs in life: as time goes by, life periods march further. When this moment arrives, accumulated energy blossoms. The dumping lights are like blossomed energy. They stand for lightness and enable people to see reality clearly.

再向下一些,灯桥穿过三块玻璃,从蓝色渐变成灰,最后融入灰色的地板。这也是“瑶·咖啡”最重要的部分——让不同身高的人都能舒适而立,站着喝咖啡。你可以和三两好友轻靠柱子,相谈甚欢。

Downer, the light bridge crosses three pieces of glass, and the batten changes from blue to gray. This is the most important part of Yao Café – let people in different height stand comfortably and drink coffee. You can lean on the pillars and chat with friends happily.

低处盛开的茶几和凳子也十分可爱。茶几是黑色烤漆玻璃制成的六边形,介于方圆之间,透出一股中庸、平衡之道。凳子也是设计师亲手设计的,和灰色的墙体相融,带着天生的自然亲近。

The end tables and stools are cute too. End tables are made of hexagonal black paint glass. The shape hexagon is in the middle of square and circle, which illustrates a kind of moderation and balance. The stools were also designed by the designer, which integrate with the gray wall and show friendliness.

沿着这片灰色向上看,你会惊诧于大喇喇裸露着石头的天花板——这也是设计师故意为之的,让石头本身的样子一览无遗。这座老楼经历了四十年的时光,时光的痕迹让人沉醉,也最真实。被时光雕刻的水泥天花板自带家的亲近,消除距离感。客人仿佛在拜访朋友家,而非一场平平无奇的交易。

Look up along with the gray, you will be surprised by the ceiling with bare stones – this is also what the designer did on purpose. He wanted to show the initial and original face of the stones. The old building has experienced forty years. The marks of time is charming and the realist. The concrete ceiling brings close feeling at home and diminishes feeling of distance. When coming in, clients are like visiting a friend instead of making a deal.

「着迷瑶·咖啡」
「Fascinated by Yao Café」

更深处,是多功能会议室:拉上折叠门,人们可以开会、聚会、甚至独处;拉开折叠门,又是“瑶·咖啡”里的另一个角落,你可以旁若无人地发呆、放空、冥想。

More deeply, there is the multi-functional meeting room. When closing the folding door, people can have meetings, gather, or even stay alone. When opening the folding door, this is another corner of Yao Café. You can be in a daze, banish yourself, or think as you like.

设计师说:洗手间也是店内纯洁的一面,它很重要。于是他用纯洁的线光作为唯一光源。洗手盆采用建筑用的防水防晒木板,保留它原有的红色和亮度——这也是设计师前所未有的尝试。这些红色木板围绕成方形,静默地表达着态度和格局。

The designer said that toilet is a facet of cleanness in the store. It is important. So he utilized the pure linear light as the only light source. The wash basin is made of plank used in architecture and its red and brightness are maintained, which is also designer’s first try. The red planks form a square and illustrates attitude.

从前,他以为“唯有热爱能抵岁月漫长”;现在,他知道,除了热爱,还有咖啡和梦能抵岁月漫长。而设计师为它去繁就简、去精留粗、再度设计,只“瑶”圆梦。也许,情怀和梦是最好的装饰吧!

Before, he believed that only passion could pass time’s test; currently, he knows that coffee and dream can also do that. The designer simplified, perfect, and re-designed the coffee shop, all to realize Mario’s dream. Maybe dream is the best decoration.

▼咖啡杯上的“瑶”, the “Yao” character on the cafe cup

润砾成珠,方为美玉;掌心化雪,才得纯粹。
一杯敬朝阳一杯敬月光
一杯敬明天一杯敬过往
一杯敬热爱一杯敬家人

好的建筑,会自己说故事。就像这首日本小诗一般,Mario的“瑶·咖啡”蕴藏了他的柔情和温暖。当灯光倾城、倾泻而下,你环顾四周清冷的水泥空间,暖意氤氲升起……

《心情——写给女儿》
[日本]松本早苗 著
支持我
理解我
选择了我 谢谢呀
暖暖的笑脸
明亮的歌声
这样小小的幸福 谢谢呀
你小小身体里满满的能量
让我信心十足
好好生活
一直想说 谢谢 让我生下你
因为有你 每一个日出
都让我 有点想说感谢
我那么平凡
但你还是挑了我
我会一直自豪的
因为我是你挑的爸爸

纳兰容若:赌书消得泼茶香,当时只道是寻常。那些寻常生活中的存在,最能牵动人心。郑小馆把寻常可见的事物:水泥和白色融入瑶·咖啡之中,让人不经意地撞近情深几许的父女情中。藏在一器一物中的温度,就像细水长流的亲情般,跟着迂回曲折的灯桥,温柔地将人拥入怀中。

▼古朴原始的设计元素, ancient and original factors

Stones spend long time before being pearls
Cheers!
One for the rising sun, one for moonlight
One for tomorrow, one for the past
One for passion, one for family

Good architecture tells story. Like the Japanese poem, Mario’s Yao Café represents his softness and warmth. When lights dump down and you look around, you will find warmth rising…

Feelings – Write to My Daughter
Support me
Understand me
And chose me, thank you
Warm smile
Bright songs
Small happiness, thank you
You have full energy
Makes me confident
Live a good life
I want to say “thank you” for a long time
Let me give birth to you
Because of you, every sunrise
Makes me want to say “thank you”
I am that normal
But you picked me
I will be pride
Because I am the father picked by you

Nalan Rongruo, a Chinese poet said: all wonderful things were seen as normal. The normal things in daily life are what actually touch people. Lauren Cheng utilized ordinary things (concrete and white) in Yao Café, and let people bump into love between a father and his daughter. The warmth hidden in everything is like subtle but lasting family love. Along with the light bridge, they huge you in arms.
