NIGO has professed his undying love for Blue Bottle Coffee by integrating the cafe into his HUMAN MADE Kyoto flagship store. Just last month HUMAN MADE launched a collaborative merch collection with the coffee shop where NIGO designed custom staff uniforms and a bespoke Future Blend for the coffee’s Shibuya store. The iconic HUMAN MADE ethos featured on the cotton t-shirts and co-branded heart motifs are set to be on display at the first in-house Blue Bottle. This marks the first time Blue Bottle has been integrated into another store.
The Blue Bottle Coffee shop within the flagship store is a fully functioning cafe that retains much of its own and HUMAN MADE’s trademarks. It features wooden classic wooden countertops and stylish angular shapes alongside a large stock of NIGO’s exclusive Future Blend coffee.
The shop is also expected to sell a selection of HUMAN MADE x Blue Bottle Coffee merch including a range of ceramic mugs and tumblers to custom pour-over sets. Those fans of the Future Blend will be able to purchase that in-store as well as sample heart-shaped sweets crafted at the historic, centuries-old Kyoto tea establishment, Kagizen Yoshifusa. These treats are made exclusively for NIGO’s Kyoto Blue Coffee branch.
