Play Pot restaurant by Lim Tae Hee Design Studio, Seoul

September 30th, 2012 by retail design blog

With the idea to break the barrier between interior and exterior space, designer Lim Taehee injected stereotypes of a typical street vendor into an interior space. Metaphorical road signs are used throughout, while potted flowers and industrial surfaces further enhance the ‘outdoor’ feeling. Meanwhile, a heavy duty tarpaulin is suspended from the ceiling, creating a warm glow as light passes through.

‘The idea was to make Play Pot a “super luxury food vendor”,’ Taehee says, adding that street food has been given an ‘gourmet twist.’ Inside the 77-sq-m restaurant, plywood combines with paint, concrete and the tarpaulin, undeniably adding pizzazz to a fast food restaurant. Play Pot is a boonsik restaurant – a term used to describe an inexpensive shop selling Korean snacks.
