Décoratrice: Bread Galleries II

In last week’s post I presented to you some of the coolest bakeries around the world. And here is the sequel!

In Vienna, Austria, the best destination for lovers of organic bread is Joseph.

This is the first retail store for owner Josef Weghaupt and master baker Friedrich “Fritz” Potocnik.. It was designed by Martin Dvorak. Joseph’s delicacies are also available at the city’s finest cafés restaurants and shops.


In our neighbor country and more specifically in Istanbul, Komsufirin (meaning: the oven in the neighbourhood  exists less than five years but has grown to some 60 stores in Turkey. It sells predominantly pre-baked products. It is by all means an artisan boutique enterprise.

Seyhan Özdemir and Sefer Cağlar used natural oak and white tiles to create both a modern and friendly environment.

This growing bakery chain aims for 350 stores by 2013 and 1,000 stores by 2020!


Lagkagehuset Bakery, located in Copenhagen, designed by Space Copenhagen. The name translates as “pie house”, but there is no homey-pie atmosphere in this store.

The owners, Steen Skallebæk and Ole Kristoffersen, have been baking independently of each other since the early 1990s. But in 2008, they became a great team and started Lagkagehuset.

Today Lagkagehuset has 18 stores in Denmark.


And now, my favorite! The minimal one!

Panscape bakery in Kyoto, Japan, represents the new look of bakeries. The store is tiny, just over 26 square meters, and has only the basic furniture that a bakery needs.

Eventually, less is more!
