Humanscale launched the concept for the Re:Charge Café in Milan's Brera Design District. Humanscale’s acting creative director and designer Todd Bracher—who is also behind some of the brand’s recent designs, including Trea chair, which mimics the recline of the human body, as well as the glare-free Vessel light—will turn a local Milanese café on Via Solferino into the Re:Charge Café concept.    

Re:Charge Café will have a communal table with custom charging stations with built-in biological lighting and a green, air-purifying wall, made possible by the vertical agriculture specialist Vertical Field. It will also have free Wi-Fi and a bar.

The Re:Charge Café concept is also inspired by “engineered nature,” a trend identified and developed by London-based trend forecasting studio Franklin Till, which draws on humanity’s inherent connection to the natural world and the health benefits of being exposed to nature.
