PLATO Café is a bistro/café/bar turned into an original work of art by the Polish visual artist, performer and stage designer Dominika Olszowy. A backup facility within a unique space as both an artwork and an open place for meeting, collaboration, friendship…

The artist was inspired by the Chinese zodiac; more specifically by the earth as the domain of this year of the Dog, characterised by mutual tolerance. PLATO Café has shrouded in brown and coffee colours, becoming the ambassador of this value. The bar features pieces of furniture – amulets with embedded magical stones – that can be arranged to one’s own energetic compilations. Olszowy’s environmentalist exhibition project rouses from complacency and incites action – “slow café” to bolster the spirit.
