The Flask coffee shop project was commissioned and conceptualised by our friend, artist and coffee enthusiast Chihoon. According to his brief, the project is designed in a minimalist, almost laboratory style. The interior was inspired by South Korean contemporary design.

The main area of the coffee shop is housed in a shipping container structure. It is connected to the glass 'greenhouse' terrace via stained glass doors and circular windows. The main coffee bar area has a clear concept: a minimalistic bar with a stainless steel surface is complemented by modular sculptural tables and stools which can be assembled like a construction set.

The terrace area is more relaxed, with two cosy padded areas of standard dining seating.

Initially a snow-white project, the artwork by the artist VSUuniversal was harmoniously complemented by a composition of black lines applied to the various surfaces of the space in an artist's recognisable pattern.
