Appreciation towards Atelier TAO+C for providing the following description:


Lotus Dessert is located inside a Carrefour in Shanghai, which specializes in traditional Cantonese dessert use lotus seeds as the main ingredient. The designer intends to recall the memories of a traditional street food stall with simple contemporary design language. The fabric curtain signs, menu handwritten on a wooden board convey an ordinary everyday life atmosphere, but also with a sense of strangeness in an urban environment.

重拾日常之美,是TAO&C的设计线索。意向落入设计之前的首要考虑是如何在极小的尺度中实现功能的集合,将厨房、点餐吧台和座位区三大区块融入20平方米内, 并容纳适宜的尺度和恰当的联系。在隔出厨房之后,围绕边界做一层浅木色木柜和墙板。座位区被浅木色墙板舒适的包围,利用实木多层板的材料自身特性——侧边和面层的不同,形成立面上的线与面的构图,也是工艺本身的结构体现。

Accommodated the kitchen, bar and seating area within 20 square meters, the designer seeks restore the appropriate dimensions. The kitchen is hided behind, the designer wrapped all the enclosures with maple plywood at a datum line about 2.2 meters high, resulted in a cozy seating are surrounded by wood. By emphasizing the nature of the plywood – the wooden plane and the side of section shows the multi-layers, the plane as the wall panels, the side as the structures and frames, formed a composition of the elevation which is simple and meanwhile complicate.

The wooden cabinets between the kitchen and bar were embedded with striated glass and framed by the stripes of plywood, functions as both the external display cabinet and the inner kitchen counter. The glass enables us to see through the kitchen, the solidity of the wall disappeared.

The bronze frames hanging from the ceiling combine with banners, sign and suspended lights. The ceiling and wall above the datum line were painted in green, with the finish of maple plywood, creating an atmosphere of bright and fresh as the flavor of the dessert.
