the spatial significance offers a canvas for the visitors


‘lisa collection’ created by do-M team is located in do hwa seo, korea, a previous fine art administrative office for the royal court during the joseon dynasty. today, the historical heritage of the site bridges the past and present. the spatial significance offers a canvas for the visitors to create their very own contemporary dohwaseo with korean art, fashion, culture, and life with the backdrop of the philosophy of the space. the walls are covered with terrazzo tiles, colorful paint, and colored mirrors. as for the furniture, they are all painted with high glossy urethane paint and powder coated to give this effect of ‘wonderland’ that the designers wanted to achieve.

inspired by an imaginary wonderland

do-M team assembled shapes, colors, and patterns of the furniture to convey the vitality of the season. this is how wonderland’s spring was born. furthermore, emerald bubbles are layered to capture the fantastical summer dreamscape, while autumn creates a promenade among the clouds in the clear autumn sky created by orange structures. the project location is historically meaningful and the constantly evolving scenery of the four seasons is captured on the visitors’ smartphones and travel further to another dimension to create a digital landscape in another space and time.
