aworks is a seoul-based design company founded in 2001, with works that range from interior to exhibition to retail design. their latest project called ‘galaxy cottage’ houses a ‘test lab’ for a company’s electronics design team. at this location, the designers come up with ideas about new products and perform tests and studies. the space is composed of three sections: an archive for products, an area for performance tests done before they are released, and a zone dedicated to discussion and conversation.

each section was designed for easy use of products and communication between coworkers. the concept was to generate a space for people living in a virtual world called galaxy, imagining a small cottage in the middle of the universe. the fence of the cottage translates into a white structure on the walls that saves data and various books while defining the relationship with the outside. the interiors of the cabin were created with a three-dimensional multi-level space that leads, guides, and draws positively multiple activities and discussions.

an area named ‘pongdang table’ serves both for meetings and as a stage. a multi-leveled space can be used as a stand, where the designers can store products and have a conversation or read a book at the same time. the top part seconds as a runway designed for testing and showing new products. the overall result is a space that makes possible for designers to find better solutions and products by motiving creative activities.
