by Robyn Yager | There’s more than meets the eye to Innocent Coffee on West 4th. It’s known chiefly as a tranquil cafe brewing coffees from Origins and Bows X Arrows, but that’s just the main floor. It’s really a two story affair, with the whole second floor dedicated to art exhibitions and other creative ventures. The “Upper Room”, as it is fittingly called, is currently hosting a pop-up shop by Woo To See You featuring items hand-picked by principal aesthetes Hans Woo and Justin Alm. And coinciding with their pop-up is an exhibition celebrating and exploring communication and design through typographic posters. That’s four beautiful things – coffee, fashion, communication, design — all under one roof until December 1st, 2012. See you there.
