Budae Jijgae restaurant by m4 design, Seoul

February 24th, 2012 by retail design blog

A university campus restaurant offers students a place to meet and mingle under metaphorical shade from trees above. Designers Young-sub Yun and Kwang-hyun Han of m4 looked to their favourite spots where to enjoy food, and modeled the design after these inspirations.

The resulting restaurant has a large wooden type of house in its centre, which contains the kitchen. Covering the ceiling, a type of leafy pattern was used in the lighting. The designers say this creates the feeling of dining under branches and leaves.

The restaurant’s name, Budae Jijgae, comes from a type of soup made during the Korean War. American military officers would use canned sausages to make the recipe, which was then consumed out of need but is today enjoyed as a type of historic dish.
