Sisal covers almost every surface in Pauline's stand-up coffee bar

Tactile surfaces made from sisal plant fibres helped Master Studio foster an inviting atmosphere inside this pared-back coffee bar in Cape Town, South Africa.

Located in Cape Town's buzzing Sea Point neighbourhood, Pauline's has been designed by Master Studio to feature a "minimalist interior that retains its warmth".

Other than a couple of ceramic vases filled with wildflowers, decor has been kept to a minimum. Flashes of colour are provided by packets of the cafe's own coffee beans that are openly on display.

Master Studio isn't the only designer to make use of sisal in retail spaces. Back in 2014 Arquitectura-G used the textile to upholster stepped display platforms in a Barcelona homeware boutique.

However, Pauline's is more tactile than the coffee bars that have recently appeared on Dezeen: Voice of Coffee in Japan and % Arabica in Hong Kong both feature raw concrete interiors.
