Kith’s third outlet resides in the Sentosa Cove Quayside neighbourhood, welcoming residents, tourists, or anyone looking for a quick getaway in Singapore’s newest seaside marina residential district.
With its seaside living and signature view of the berthed yachts in the Sentosa marina, marble was chosen as the main raw material for this latest Kith endeavour. Large slabs of white creamy marble and wood as lightly coloured as skin were acquired to form much of the tables, counters and fixtures, in keeping with the Kith’s interior brand language. Much of the chairs and lighting were selected from international furniture brands; Tom Dixon, Andreu World and Dedon to add a sophisticated finesse and coordinations of bright and inviting colours. An open magazine shelf for browsing and a 9m long chalkboard wall with handwritten scribbled daily specials are just some of the unmistaken signatures of Kith’s interior. Various seating options were emphasised to ensure alternating views to accompany food and conversation: outdoor alfresco seating for a full view of the marina, a long communal table for sharing, indoor bar-height seating against the wall overlooking the entire café and cosy dining seating at the rear.
At the heart of the cafe stands the island bar, a fixture of mixed sized cut marble, copper and brass plates, surrounded by wrought iron shelves of fresh produce and their daily inventory. And in it stands the captain of the bar, the barista who pulls coffee for the usual kith and kin, who revel in good food and great conversations.
