Coll Coll Studio has recently delivered the NoD café, overlooking Dlouha Street, in Prague, a multidimensional place full of life that offers a theatre, a gallery and a café.

The bar, which is already considered a favourite on the most in itinerary of this city, wants to attract daytime coffee shop visitors, looking for a peaceful atmosphere to work or relax, but is also the perfect place to grab a drink with some friends.

As the Czech practice explains, "our proposal was to amplify an early 20th century atmosphere whilst keeping the NoD signature". Thus, the studio decided to create a large central bar with an elevated seating area, under the floating Jiri David's golden bones sculpture.

Examples of this are the smoked oak parquet, the white mosaic at the bar and the traditional chairs, accompanied by the brass elements. With a markedly neutral backdrop, there are occasional colourful touches, seen mostly in the gold and in the bottle's details. During the day, we recommend a cup of speciality coffee or or a light bite from a range of wraps and homemade desserts.
