Machabang by Company

Aamu Song & Johan Olin of Finnish design studio Company created Machabang, a temporary installation at the Insa Art Space in Seoul, Korea earlier this year.


Intended to resemble an indoor street-market, the space is used by visitors to the museum for reading, watching videos and drinking coffee.


The installation ran from March 6 - June 30.

The following information is from Company:


Project: Macha Bang
Place: Insa Art Space, Seoul, Korea
Design: COMPANY (Aamu Song & Johan Olin)


We were assigned by INSA Art Space to make a space for visitors to read books, view videos and drink coffee. We were given two weeks time, a budget (in cash) and two interns to help in the building work.


After a fast calculation of time and money available, we decided to make an indoor street-market.


All materials and furniture can be bought from the streets in Seoul and there are many super-fast Pojanmacha (street stand) makers.


To have a street market indoors we decided to make everything soft and use as many colours as possible.
