Super Matcha is a minimalist coffee shop located in Seoul, South Korea, designed by Studio Unravel. Dry and unaffected materials are placed keeping an equal distance. The true meaning of the space completes when you face ‘what you cannot see with your eyes’, just as Frank Stella said: “what you see is what you see.”. The space of Super Matcha Seongsu focuses on ‘what’ you can fill up the empty space with, and not just keeping the space blank. When the scent and spirit of Matcha melt into the empty area, the ‘nature’ of matcha finally remains alone. Special opportunity to enjoy and experience Matcha and tea ceremony is provided in this restrained and emptied space where there is no unnecessary interference but the act of burning Matcha is maximized.
