Imagine you fly yourself from the city to the jungle and have campfire party with your friends. Experiencing the minimal surreal fantasy café in the hart of Bangkok, slowly walk into the space and look around the urban jungle created with imagination of walking into the jungle- all details like stand in the middle of the urban jungle next to the campfire party with your close friends and family and we all ready to party until late night.
Look closely to each interesting elements with distinctive details that communicate well with the user.
From the entrance area, you would meet the big playful signage with the word “Life is short. Eat dessert first” which hang from the ceiling – in the eye level which grab attention from the people who walk pass around shop front area, also the TV screen with the moving dessert graphic and the warm white light like the light of the warm sun in the jungle.
Coming into the seating area, up to the ceiling you would see the big white lamp with the red stripe which inspired from the tent that we going to stay in there, this inspiration easily find when we go camping with our friends.
next to the entrance area, the visitors would meet the giant maple tree bar cabinet which definitely inspired from the giant maple tree you can easily find it in the jungle – which gives you a clam and warm feeling together with the falling leaves drift by the maple tree, which the falling leaves made from the piece of pine wood.
