South Korean interior designers Nordic Bros. Design Community used double layers of polycarbonate fixed to thin black frames to screen off the kitchen and office while allowing light to penetrate the room.

The angular table stretching across the teaching area is over four metres long and only one centimetre thick, and has a shiny gold tabletop.

Earlier this year we featured a high-tech cooking workshop in Spain for a Michelin-starred chef and a culinary centre in San Sebastián with metallic gold facades.

Polycarbonate walls have also appeared in a number of projects we've featured lately, including a house in Japan with an upper storey made of polycarbonate sheds and an elevated extension to an indoor running track at a gym in the Czech Republic.

Here's some more information from the architects:


Baking studio Una's Kitchen is located in Chungdamdong, Seoul, as a contemporary space based on black and white. The owner/chef planned the space to share tasty food with beloved people and the space is full of the client's emotion entirely.

The 70 sq m space is not only divided into kitchen, office and studio but also connected by the transparent Double-Wall Polycarbonate. The boomerang-formed studio table(to a thickness of a centimetre, 4.2 metres long in length) located in centre of studio is based on black and white with the classic colour, gold.

    This top hat light is a FAKE and a COPY of the Wooster light designed by Jake Phipps and produced by Innermost. Dezeen should know better than to promote intellectual property infringement no matter where in the world the project is!
    Disgusted!

      Can’t the top hat light be bought from Wooster light? I don’t see anything above that said Nordic Bros designed the top hat light. If Nordic Bros bought the lights, it shouldn’t be a problem.

    When will people realise that those top hat lights are completely naff?
