Architecture and interior design firm
ARKIM, has recently completed SAM SAM, a unique and small restaurant in Melbourne, Australia, that serves Korean chicken and beer.
Drawing inspiration from the retro style of the 60s and the architecture of traditional Korean public baths, the designers created a contemporary interior using lighting features, tiered seating, and tiles.
The design of the restaurant also needed to be incorporated with Sam Sam’s branding concept of ‘casual and fun Korean dining’.
The designers did this by embracing the tile design and the seating style of public baths, while curving their edges to emphasize continuity and minimalism.
A neon sign and a single lighting element can change the color of the interior and create a different atmosphere for the diners.
