Works Appreciation
  • Souva
    Client: Fast service restaurant of Greek food in Seoul, South Korea. The restaurant positions itself as a democratic place with a modern look at classic Greek kitchen. Challenge: The task was to develop a logo and brand identity along with interior design. The owner already had a picture of an atmosphere and mood of the future restaurant, so our mission was to understand his idea and to show it through the design. The main rule was to avoid usual and cliche way to show Greek style. The Souva restaurant’s mood had to be expressive and catchy, with a bit rough street spirit. Logo The name had been picked before we started working. The word “Souva” comes from a popular Greek street food dish named “souvlaki” (pieces of grilled meat and vegetables wrapped in pita). We wanted to keep the logo simple and at the same time to transmit a touch of Greek spirit, so the solution was to make a typographic logotype with a slight Greek character in letter “A”. Also we include a symbol of fire, that could be recognized as an olympic one. Since the overall style had to be bright and dynamic, we created a group of alternative logotype symbols. Concept The idea was to show Greece from a different not typical point of view, because today it is not just ancient statues and blue color. While creating visual identity we basically had to do the same as was done in the kitchen: we wanted to have a contemporary look on Greek style. So the result is a mixture of vintage Greek posters and photos, put together in a collage technique with a handwritten phrases and tags, with a spirit of street-art and underground. Brand identity and interior design All visual components starting from food packaging and ending up with interior design transmit the concept’s rioter style. It is not about fancy food, complicated recipes and expensive finishing materials. It’s a place turned outside in: the street is brought inside the restaurant. For that reason we used simple outside finishing like concrete, metal, rough wood, neon, profiled sheeting and metal mesh; we glued posters and made wall tags.

  • Gaudí System
    Sponsored by Audi Innovation, Gaudí System is a responsive sanitary piece designed to give users full control of their basic bathing necessities, “humanizing” an object that we use daily, while addressing issues of energy efficiency and subsequently money saving through critical aspects of its design. Taking into account physical posture and ergonomics, Gaudí System can transform the floor and reshape a bathing landscape as decided by the user. A single surface organizes the bathroom floor through a uniform tessellated pattern that consists of antibacterial rubber tiles. These are attached on a stretchable, water resistant polyurethane-coated Spandex membrane that is resilient and durable. With the help of hydraulic actuators that are fully integrated in the floor, the surface can be reshaped in a variety of formations in order to convert the shower floor to an artificial bathing landscape. A concealed overflow channel and extendable taps allow the whole system to flush with the floor and disappear completely when not in use. The design was born from the idea of how to provide maximum flexibility that reflects the individual lifestyle, while helping to tell the story of a space and the people who occupy it. With its huge range of possible combinations and versatility, the system adopts to suit every situation, growing with the single user as well as the changing needs of different users. From both a psychological and a functional point of view it is proven that people interact more efficiently and in a more pleasant manner with objects that can empathize and connect to. Considering that price of water and energy in the near future will be significantly higher globally, the whole system addresses issues of energy efficiency and subsequently money saving through critical aspects of its design. Taking into account physically satisfying posture and ergonomics, the bathtub shape can be adjusted to person’s body type, minimizing the water required to fill it when in use if the user requires so: smaller for children – larger for adults. Heat transfer between the hot water and the rubber surface occurs at a lower rate due to the rubber’s low thermal conductivity. Subsequently, it is not required to overheat the water, in order to compensate for the loss of heat absorbed from the tile surface. This saves energy and also creates a comfortable environment. Moreover, rubber texture is closer to skin texture, so it implies a friendlier physical contact with the human body.

  • Hand in Hand
    Recent refugee crisis in Europe catches the attention of everyone,there launched a design campaign by Ikea Finland. We, students of spatial design from Aalto University, were invited to design light installations to express and diffuse humanistic care to the asylum seekers. Our project is the combination of a light and shadow installation as well as the interactive performance art with it. The audiences are invited to shake hands with the installation and complete artistic hand-in-hand shadows which symbolize the concern to the refugee. Thus we name the project “Hand in hand” not only to communicate and voice humanistic care but trigger the public to concern and think about the crisis. The interactive installation is made of LED bars. When LEDs are on, the piece is a dynamic chandelier. When LEDs are off and another spotlight is projecting, the messy bars create a hand-shape shadow on the wall. When the audience stretches out one hand in front of the spotlight, there will be another hand-shape shadow, just then the audience and the installation complete not only a interactive hand-in-hand shadow, but nice and friendly handshake. The interactive performance art offers the public a fresh and playful experience with light and shadow, lets everyone to concern and think about the crisis and initiates humanistic care.

  • Userless Design
    There exist unhealthy phenomena in design industry (mostly design corporations and schools) that designers have been shifting their one-sided focus only to forms and what is in appearance rather than taking target users into account. For instance, some design, unable to built out, are stored on papers or in computers; commercial designers indulge themselves with stunning renderings; graduates are addicted to magnificent but inane final year projects. Our poster is a critical design, likewise criticized design and designers. It is the time to disclose those impracticable ones and trigger everyone’s thinking and reflection. We designed a chair with visual dislocation, a seat unable to be sitten on, to present our critics on those design that only feasible on the screen. We deem it that design need critics. Poster is an entertaining and powerful approach, thus we present our critical design with a poster. We, inspired by M.C. Escher’s impossible objects, design a chair with visual dislocation, a seat unable to be sitten on, to criticize on those design that only feasible on the screen. The preternatural chair is a visual narrative that expresses our ideas.

  • Sakura --- Shining Time
    Glitter, brilliance, illumination, the charm can pass through time and space and reach the eternal! The pavilion design is like a diamond, crafted and dazzling. From the shape structure, Sakura Pavilion presents in the eyes of the visitors with the simple shape of diamond, with structure and facade reaching the perfect unity. The modeling of each unit is equipped with hidden lights, clearly seen between the tiles in brilliance. In the appearance design, designers no longer attend to others but just use simple, nimble and resourcefully changeable "straight lines" to build the skin, by using the brand's main colors -- red as a whole painting for perfect combination, which gives the pavilion a strong and powerful autokinetic effect with distinct personality and unique temperament. Meng Zi said: "Enrichment means beauty, and enrichment and brilliance can be said as large"! Diamond is the treasure passing through time; sakura is like diamond shining eternally, bright and gorgeous
