The plate, just like the stage, is the best way for the food to appear and the curtain call. Color, aroma and taste are the temptation of food, and only dancing with the plate can be considered a perfect performance.
The empty plate is a kind of expectation, and also a situation.
This is true in turn from the utensils to the space. The plate is the carrier of the food, the table is the carrier of the plate, the space is inclusive of all, is also the theater of diners. The space is also the theater of the diners.
By extension, it means that diners are satisfied and happy with the food, and it also advocates diners to order wisely and avoid waste. The manager’s business philosophy and confidence in his own ingredients are reflected in the name of the restaurant, KONPAN Empty Plate.
在 外物 WHY WOULD 的理解与思考中，其表义与内涵所展现的关联性与差异性亦是项目研究与导向的侧重点。
In the understanding and consideration of WHY WOULD, the relevance and difference between its expression and connotation are also the focus of the research and orientation of the project.
一方面，KONPAN 空盤其字面意义仅为空空如也的盘子，并无其他释义。但作为传统思维所构想，大多数人视角所理解的“盘”为市面圆形结构的瓷制餐具，而“盘”的另一种形态——椭圆 仍为市面小众存在的一种类型，而其更具有“符合规则而独具一格”的内在特性。
KONPAN, on the one hand, literally means an empty plate, and has no other meaning. However, as a traditional thinking, most people understand “plate” as a round structured porcelain tableware in the market，while the other form of “plate”, oval, is still a niche type in the market. The other form of “plate”, the oval, is still a niche type in the market, and has the inherent characteristic of “conforming to the rules and being unique”.
Meanwhile, KONPAN’s empty plate is more worthy of consideration and understanding in its derivative spirit. According to us, KONPAN is not only an expression of KONPAN in the shallow consciousness, but also an expression of the response and attitude to the ingredients and the values of the restaurant itself.
Therefore, simple and restrained, orderly and meticulous are also the key words extracted from the spiritual level.
A logical order is established in an orderly manner, and the concept of “empty” in the traditional sense is expressed through the orderly arrangement of the spatial order, while the spiritual aspect and the attitude towards diners are expressed through the simplification of materials and the meticulous node processing.
Following the same lineage as the brand logo, the spatial symbols are constructed from squares and ovals. A square box is placed in the space, and the front desk, aisle, bathroom, toilet, cleaning room, and even ice cream equipment are integrated into the box and formed into a block to insert into the overall space.
Integrating the overall design language, WHY WOULD developed custom-made seating and lighting products using the materials and graphic language chosen for the space, and repeatedly made prototypes and adjustments during the production process to continue the brand character of the space as simple but restrained, orderly and meticulous.
Inside and outside
The physical properties of the embossed glass map out different spectral silhouettes, and the internal and external environments intertwine to form a dynamic theatrical contrast between the interior and the exterior, overlapping and penetrating each other.
