When Canteen owner Brian Heck hired Von Tundra to design the interiors of his vegetarian cafe, the goal was "to appropriate the language of mobility" (as a nod to Heck's Sip juice and smoothie carts). Portland, Oregon-based design collective Von Tundra (consisting of Dan Anderson and Chris Held, classmates at Oregon College of Art and Craft) looked to the Shakers for inspiration, creating a wrap-around peg system from which they suspended menus, storage cubbies for provisions, and even magazine racks. For more, go to Canteen . Above: The cafe's exterior is painted a deep dark gray; photo by Michael A. Muller for Kinfolk .
