Dezeen – Seven ice cream shops

As the warm weather fades away and winter approaches, Dezeen has scooped up seven design-focused ice cream shops to satisfy your sweet tooth all year round, and we were thrilled to have two of our projects featured.

Milk Train, London, UK, by FormRoom

Cut-out clouds and pastel-blue walls form a whimsical backdrop to the London store of ice cream star Milk Train, a brand that has become increasingly popular on Instagram for its wacky ice cream offerings.

FormRoom interpreted the brand’s name into train-like seating booths, departure board-style menus and overhead shelves that display prop suitcases.

Travel-related puns dotted about the interior in neon signage also encourage visitors to snap images and share on the photo-sharing app.

Dyce, London, UK

Shiny convex mirrors decorate the millennial-pink and baby-blue interior of Dyce, an ice cream parlour in London’s Marylebone neighbourhood.

The ice cream shop design and cafe, designed to be both “unexpected and immersive”,  features a mix of Instagrammable and surrealist features – its curved floor and two-tiered seating are meant to resemble melting ice cream, while subtly nodding to the work of artist Salvador Dali.
