mural tile


At Oak & Rush in Chicago, Starbucks designers worked with artist Olalekan Jeyifous to create a large 25 panel mural depicting an Oak tree providing shade to a coffee tree, while sharing vignettes of a coffee story rising through its boughs. The mural includes tiles that depict oak leaves, coffee cherries and a coffee bean in a style that is inspired by Chicago’s rich architectural tradition. Casual seating downstairs caters to to-go customers, where planks salvaged from boxcars clad walls, ceilings, and fixtures.
