Pop-up Café by PYE
From the architect. The design concept is based on an idea to create exceptional exhibiting space for people to hang-out and enjoy visual art and objects in an atmosphere where they could relax and in the heart of Bangkok most exciting shopping complex. Counting on 200m2, where you can find vintage furniture, objects, unique design fixtures especially brought to the cafe, a selection of international books and fragrances, etc. We portrayed and designed this space as if we were at home. With a large surface dedicated to a restaurant for 60 people around the area, the cafe welcomes guests as if they were with their own friends where they sit to share gourmet cuisines and drinks.
We therefore create a pop up café through the concept of Installation Art “Seamless Insertion” illustrating ambiances of naughty, fun, bright, exotic, and restfully comfortable. There areas are seamlessly separated in to 9 zones namely Pattern Play, Art Effects, The New Tradition ,Modern Art ,Pretty in Pink ,My Favorite Icon, Fantastic Clasic, Jungle Fever and Library; each of which distinctly illustrate decoration and pattern of designs reflecting artisan living with its own interpretation through an eye of our designer.
Our layout plan illustrated a golden section or “phi” ratio that is employed and represented area’s connectivity. This solution is a common mathematical ratio found in nature that can be used to create pleasing, natural looking compositions in own design work. The use of the Golden Ratio crafting this golden section is well documented in art and design throughout history, and can be seen in everything from architecture to the grand masters. By applying a similar working methodology we brought in the design sensibilities to this conceptual pop-up art café.
