Dazzle is a minimal coffee shop located in Seoul, South Korea, designed by Plainoddity. The architect created a surface in which the light casted by the sunlight would form wave-like shadows. Cylindrical acrylic was baked and crumpled, and a water shadow was created on the wall by making the light penetrating the acrylic shine toward the wall. The water shadow flowing from the line facing the ceiling makes you feel as if you are underwater. In addition, the shape of the fixtures surrounding the entire store hall was made in the shape of a connected curve to express the wave of water. With a matte material as the background, it is emphasized by using shiny materials such as acrylic or mirror steel.
