‘shugaa’ is a desserts-only eatery designed by thai studio party / space / design. the concept is derived directly from the base of the creative menu; sugar. enlarged massively, the interior represents the various molecules and crystals that compose the desserts’ primary ingredient.

a large polygon installation describes the front façade, through which ‘shugaa’s’ warm wooden and mint green interior can be seen. upon entering, customers encounter the main dining area and the dessert bar’s most interesting feature — a sugar-like spiral staircase enclosed by a wood and acrylic structure.

the stairwell leads to a secondary dining area and receive an up-close aerial view of the chef’s line. moving towards the back on the second floor, is a third distinct area. the most private of the three, the back zone is a quiet place for enjoying a delicacy uninterrupted.

  • Nerdy comment here- The geometry looks more like salt than sugar. Salt has a cubic structure, sugar is a way more complicated shape in crystal form. (sorry, maybe I’ve just looked at too many sugar crystals)
