Floating Beauty

Located inside the MVL Hotel Kintex in Korea floats an amazing sculptural element that seems to ignore all rules of gravity. This floating ceiling structure, which looks like the wing span of an eagle in full flight, frames the bakery and wine shop that sits within. A strong layering effect has been adopted with ornate mouldings being used to create the wall display and the base of the island counters. These island counters are scattered throughout the space providing an interesting path for customers to meander through and the black and white colour scheme with marble tops allows the product to stand proud.  Not one shape or angle seems to be repeated, creating a truly unique environment. Serving a range of speciality organic breads, pastries and carefully selected wines, Il Lago Bakery and Wine has definitely injected a sense of luxury into this otherwise sparse lobby space
Why is this space truly successful?  We believe it’s because of the way it’s been cleverly integrated into the existing architecture of the building.  The designers from Design Bono haven’t allowed the existing architecture to silt their creativity in any shape or form.
