Samsung Galaxy Cottage in Seoul by Design Aworks (1)

Samsung Galaxy Cottage is a “test lab” for an electronics design team. This workspace was designed by Design Aworks, a Seoul-based design company founded in 2001. 
At this place, the designers come up with ideas about new products and perform tests and studies.



Project description: The space is largely composed of three sections: a place for an archive of product, for performance test before release and conversation and discussion area. 
Each section was designed for easy hands-up of products and communication anytime and at any places.
For people living in a virtual world called galaxy, we imagined ” a little cottage in the middle of the universe”.

The place named Pongdang Table is a table and also a stage for communication. 
At the multi-level space like a stand, the designers can store products and have a conversation or read a book at the same time. 
The top of the level is like a runway and designed for testing and showing new products.
