Pink Gorilla Coffee / Plainoddity
- Area :
Text description provided by the architects. As if a gorilla looks fierce and wild, it’s actually a vegetarian animal. The concept of space was designed to showcase the gorilla’s reversal charm. The sensual and hard rock aspect is expressed in the form, and the soft personality is expressed in pink.
Tables and chairs were made in the form of a bulky and rough polygonal shape. The flooring also has the shape of a polygon, which was also selected to emphasize the robust form of the gorilla.
As for the color of the space, we tried to use as many different finishing materials as possible in the same pink tone. A rose-red copper plate, pink travertine marble and 4 types of pink tone paint were used to make the space feel deeper by using dark colors as you enter and ascend from the bottom.
Using colored LEDs on the back of the angled furniture and the mirror, creating a pink ombre gave another reversal of fun. The landscaped space that evokes the central space uses exterior stones to bring a sense of locality like Africa where gorillas live. The outdoor space is neatly curated, but rather than putting it through glass, the display furniture inside is extended outward, making it a sign that stimulates curiosity.
