The inner walls are covered in light boxes, which are used as background to display colourful variety of test tubes.
The counter made of Corian board printed with the Periodic table, using new initials that represent the different ice cream combinations.
The lighting is made out of pvc pipes in different colors that looks like transmitting tubes, and contains the brands ice cream cups which ends with a round light bulb. The cup holder stand was treated the same way.
