Item Details
The unassuming building on bustling Hackney Road has gone through many transformations in its long lifespan. The former Victorian brewery, transport depot and mechanic’s garage has been completely refurbished to house a cafe/bar/coworking space for modern life.

Tala was retrofitted into this space specifically for its superior dimming capabilities to accommodate a subtle changeover from cafe to bar. The oversized Gaia bulb matches the industrial feel of the red brick and concrete, emitting a gentle, ambient glow when the lights are lowered for intimate evening affairs.
