Café JORD - Malmö, Sweden

Project by IDEAS Interior Architects

Nestled in the heart of Malmö, Sweden, lies the best brunch spot in town; welcome to Café JORD. With an unmatched passion for vegan cuisine and striving to better the world we live in each day, JORD has reopened its doors with an all-new, thoughtfully curated interior.

The owners at JORD worked closely with local interior architects, Ideas, to masterfully bring together this relaxed and friendly café environment. Focusing on calm and neutral tonal groups, the design team at Ideas hand-picked interior details and finishes to create a nostalgic dining experience.

The design of the interior was heavily influenced by working-class neighbourhoods of the past; picture 1930’s around Sankt Knuts Square in Malmö, with timeless red bricks and warm toned textures.


"We call it reinterpreted nostalgia"

Setting out to develop a café interior that framed the food and the healthy, greener future they aspire to create, JORD and the designers at Ideas focused on bringing authenticity to the centre of the space.

When it comes to authenticity and longevity, there is no question; Coolicon lampshades are the light for the job. The team at Ideas utilise Coolicon lampshades to enhance the overall experience while promoting, maintaining, and aligning with the brand qualities that JORD live by through their choice in products.

Bringing craft to every aspect, Ideas hung our Classic Cream Original 1933 Design lampshades neatly above the countertop space, perfectly distanced to light the hustle and bustle of the café and baristas below. In a café such as JORD, where the food is made to be admired, what better suited than an iconic task light hanging low above your table for idyllic lighting…and that perfect Instagram snap!


“With focus on quality, authentic materials and craftmanship, Coolicon's lamps blend in perfectly.”
