If you prefer to be interactive with your food, the Oatmeal Studio IkHa Restaurant is designed with a one-of-a-kind experience in mind. 'IKEA hacking' has grown in popularity with global recessions and creative budgeting on the rise.
The folks at Oatmeal Studio wanted to take this money-hacking concept to its limits by designing a restaurant that is created by the customers. Using cookie-cutter furnishings from the Swedish retail giant, the firm implemented a space that is playful and cost-effective. Shelves become partition walls and act as rows for diners to weave and travel through. Quirky additions like the make-your-own-placement station encourage patrons to customize their spaces to suit their style.
The Oatmeal Studio IkHa Restaurant can be assembled and disassembled in a matter of hours, allowing the space to serve multiple purposes.
