A short break at the La Biennale Giardini site (56th International Art Exhibition), near the shop, we found this cafeteria.

We were, by that time in late afternoon, quite tired from all the walking and gawking. It was a welcoming sight even it looked totally chaotic at first.

While the patrons and their snacks and coffees were discernible, the counter was harder to see.

Stripes and bright blocks of colors – nicely done.

A cubist painting was created by the faceted mirrors that produce in real space a fragmented graphic effect.

The cafeteria was designed by Tobias Rehberger in 2009, titled “Was du liebst bringt auch zum Weinen” (what you love also brings cry).

The design reminded us of objects from Ettore Sottsass’s Memphis movement.

Filled with bold and colorful motifs, the entire space was graphical.

We relished our caffeine break and foot-resting … and then continued our tour of the nations’ pavilions in the Giardini.
