Conversations is a performative art installation developed for Contraband Cafe in San Francisco. The cafe, designed by M:oME teamed with 450 Architects, is a bustling coffee shop located at 260 5th Street near Folsom Street.  The installation was designed to perform both visually and acoustically. The form and material mitigate sounds in the cafe, thereby supporting conversations and work. The materials were sustainably-sourced and made using both digital fabrication and hand craft.
