Cafe Trays by David Rasmussen Design

Colorado-based designer David Rasmussen recently released a line of wooden cafe trays that is the perfect blend of modern-meets-craft. What started out as a small commission for a local restaurant blossomed into full-fledged product series. "The first ones I made got such rave reviews that I decided to make a second batch," says Rasmussen. "I sold those about as fast as I could churn them out. Then, I refined the process of making them and diversified the line by adding three new sizes and started producing them this spring." Carved with a CNC router and finished by hand, these plates come in maple or walnut with a neon trim and were launched at the AD Home show in Los Angeles. The plates come four sizes and retail for $42 to $52 a piece. For more information, click here.

Coffee Break: Stockholm's Cafe Foam

Located in the Östermalm neighborhood of Stockholm, Cafe Foam channels "Spanish temperament with Scandinavian cool," according to its designers, local firm Note. Indeed, the interior features the prototypical Scandinavian blonde wood and spare detailing with splashes of magenta that evoke a more fiery feeling—an unexpected mashup as the latitudes (not to mention the design sensibilities) of Spain and Sweden are about as far flung as one can get in Europe. On a blustery day this past February, I popped in to catch a glimpse of how the city does design cafes (and to escape the intermittent snow flurries). The space was chic, filled with equally fashionable customers (Östermalm is the city's design district), and the baristas serve up a latte that would've tasted equally as good in more modest surroundings. Let's have a look inside the space…

Inga Sempe's Risotto Spoon

We at Dwell are big fans of French designer Inga Sempé's work; we've profiled her in 2007; ran a Q&A from Milan on dwell.com in 2009; and most recently highlighted the making-of her already iconic Ruché sofa and, online, traced her design and prototyping process. So we were excited to hear about her most recent design, the IS01, a graceful stainless steel spoon intended for serving risotto, which won Domus and Alessi's "Design a Spoon" competition, held to celebrate the 50-year anniversary of the Italian cookbook Cucchiaio d’Argento (Silver Spoon).

Villa Zevaco

On my last morning in Casablanca I had the good luck, and lots of local recommendations, to swing past Chez Paul for breakfast. Considering the strong influence of French cuisine on Morocco's pastry life, it should come as no surprise that the croissants were extra flaky and the butter rich as can be. But Chez Paul also has the good fortune of residing in the splendid modern villa that Jean-Francois Zevaco and Paolo Messina designed in 1949 as Villa Sami Suissa.

Coffee Break: Toby's Estate

Under-caffeinated Brooklynites have a new destination in Toby's Estate coffee, an Australian cafe import that opened in January. The company has been around since 1998 but for their first U.S. outpost they contacted New York firm nemaworkshop to design the space. "It was important that the cafe be a social space for the neighborhood," says nemaworkshop's Anurag Nema. Our last Coffee Break story, we focused on Coffee Bar, a cafe meant to be a stage for the craft of coffee. In a 180-degree flip, Toby's is designed to create a stage for community. "Over the last decade, cafes have been serving up more than cups of coffee to their patrons. They're meeting places, study rooms, extensions of our living rooms, a place we feel safe to harbor for a few hours while checking our email, or finishing the final scene in what will become our breakout playwright," continues Nema. With that in mind, have look at the space in our slideshow.
