ITAFE, an experimental café located in Yiwu, sells tea, bread, and coffee. Its philosophy – "Light Your Life" – has two meanings, and both are well-interpreted in this interior design: one is the meaning of light as bright and illuminating (the café ingeniously combines natural light, reflection, and artificial light); another is less weight (the internal space is spare and essential). iTAFE embraces the street corner with a huge openable façade and pedestrian-friendly outdoor seating. It achieves business success as well as creating social value, which will be the design trend of the future.
