The coffee bar located inside a cinema with a theme of ‘stop motion’. Every film composes of thousands of stop motions. This continuation of frames produces the illusion of a moving image, freeing our minds to see what is within and beyond. The designers freeze and extract these ‘motion fragments’, embedding the elements within the cinema perimeter.
Upon stepping into the restaurant, the coffee counter acts as if it has a life of its own. The counter rotates slightly towards various directions and angles, mimicking the life of a creature.In the middle of coffee bar stands feature lighting. Every light has its own life. They point towards different angles. Every lighting could break down into smaller rectangular shapes. When jointed together, create a clamp-like shape stretching throughout the space ahead, generating a vibrant ambiance. Wall also adheres same concept; pieces of irregular fragments simulate ‘stop motions’ as a whole theme.
