Straight from Seoul, but born in Brussels ... that's Bap and Dak

Savour Korean cuisine, feel the urban vibe

At Bap and Dak, you can enjoy delicious Korean comfort food in a surprisingly ecological setting that looks inspired by both Seoul and Brussels. agency created the brand story, logo and corporate identity for this intriguing newcomer, while agency took care of the interior.

To do full justice to the interior, Dols selected the wooden Nemea chairs from the brand Pedrali. The chairs exude a classic gracefulness shaped by time and history. They combine ash veneered plywood with solid ash legs and cast aluminium frame.

The compact design of the Officina Barstool provides a counterpoint. These were designed by brothers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec for the Italian brand Magis for the perfect vibe at the bar. The Officina collection explores the possibility of developing a new creative language by working with a tried and tested manufacturing process.

The Stool has a hammered wrought iron structure with the allure of a raw material passed down through the ages, living, with those little imperfections that make each piece in the collection unique. A piece of furniture with an unmistakably industrial feel, but combined with a deeply refined and elegant spirit. Born out of love for Korean comfort food. An eclectic mix of urban, bold and linear.

Bap and Dak does not have any pretensions of being Korean. But it aims to bring a slice of Korea to Belgium. It is an inspired mix of Belgian and Korean urban influences, raw and honest materials. Various recognisable elements from the streets of both Brussels and Seoul were incorporated into the design. For example, brushed stainless steel, a characterful flask, a suspended metal grid with fluorescent lamps and concrete pedestals. But you won’t find organic or rounded shapes at Bap and Dak, but rather straight lines – like in an urban environment.
