Surf's up - Café IT

Café IT in Barton Street, HamiltonWith the net no longer just a nerd domain, Café IT in Barton Street, Hamilton is helping to cement net surfing as a trendy pastime.

The new café fit-out combines strong colours, metallics and Zincalume for a hi-tech stimulating net surfing and stomach satisfying experience.

The concrete floor and MDF computer booths gleam with a system of Resene Vinyl Etch followed by Resene Enamacryl Metallic tinted to Resene Blast Grey (steel grey) and protective acrylic urethane topcoats of Resene Aquaclear. Explosions of Resene Lumbersider satin acrylic tinted to Resene Lima (lime) on paperfaced plasterboard walls and Resene Zylone 20 flat acrylic tinted to Resene Tolopea (deep purple) on the ceiling contrast magnificently with the steel-like metallic. The complete look is softened with Resene Polythane high gloss polyurethane finished macrocarpa benchtops.

With quiet undertones of finger tapping and munching teeth, Café IT is the place to head when net exploration is on the menu.
