This Korean Café Makes Visitors Feel Like They’ve Stepped Into a Cartoon

2 mins read

Cafe owners understand that it takes more than great coffee to make a business successful. A space’s design can make or break a cafe, whether it is a Wes Anderson-esque café in the Philippines or a shop that looks like a Rolleiflex camera.

Cafe Yeonnam-dong 239-20, Seoul has been a hot spot for its unique interior design. It created a unique space that gives customers the feeling of being transported to a cartoon world.

This monochrome, the artistic design was inspired by Korea’s popular TV series, W by Lee Jongsuk and Han Hyojoo. In W, the characters battle between two worlds–the real and a fantasy world within a webtoon.

Cafe Yeonnam-dong 239-20’s design creates an optical illusion that makes it seem like customers have crossed dimensions and entered a comic book illustration. Visitors are greeted by black-and-white comic strip furniture, walls, and floors as they enter the building. Even cutlery, mugs, and dishes look like flat-line drawings.
