Tuk-Tuk

Thai cuisine bar

The space concept refeers to constructions located on thai bazaars. The main idea of the place was to familiarize the inhabitants of Warsaw with the atmosphere of street food in Bangkok, with its characteristic lack of order and rules, a bit of clutter and delicious, fragrant food made of fresh, local products.

 

 

A seemingly disordered, wooden square timber installation was mounted on the single-space area, making a vault-roof supporting lighting fittings. The lighting consists of fluorescent lamps mounted at irregular intervals and at different heights, with two types of light color-extremely warm and extremely cold. Small tables and colorful stools are scattered under the construction. Plastic chairs without backrest – probably the most popular in Thailand, were originally proposed, but due to the inability to obtain similar ones, temporarily used commonly available wooden stools were used. There is no imposed way of setting the tables, they can be freely rearranged depending on the needs of guests. The whole makes a neutral interior, to the creation of which we also used finishing materials of Thai street eateries – inexpensive tiles. The kitchen is open and makes for a stage on which the chef is the main actor.

There are no strictly imposed rules or mathematical formula in the Tuk-Tuka project. It is only an impression and a freely transformed collection of memories and associations from traveling around Thailand.
