Design Particulars: Or No matter
Following the free-spirited ethos of the model, the design of the Or No matter cafe and brunch spot in Busan, South Korea, emphasizes circularity and free circulate.
Busan-based agency Design by 83 led the store’s design primarily based on suggestions from the store proprietor who mentioned that the “or no matter” idea is meant to interrupt free from conventions.
“Once we heard these concepts from the consumer, we wished to interrupt free from the stereotypes of the present cafe area with our personal interpretation,” the agency mentioned in a press release shared with DCN. “For instance, [we] thought it might be good to have a free, gentle, and distinct persona relatively than the same old cafe format centered on vertical, horizontal, and right-angle bars.”
Inside a sq. footprint, the store is centered round a big cylinder that helps to outline the circulate amongst clients and workers. Pillars supporting the cylindrical mass are completed with birch plywood, whereas a refurbished wall, couch seating, tables and chairs had been all designed to suit seamlessly within the visitor area.
Lighting that displays off of aluminum plates creates one thing of a halo impact contained in the store, drawing consideration to the store by way of giant glass home windows dealing with the road.
“We wished the formative cylindrical mass to face out visually when trying from the surface,” the agency mentioned. “The entire glass exterior was designed to unify the connection between the within and the surface area.”
