KOREA'S rest stop redesign to the
FOOD HALL BOOM in the United States By | Emily Brooks

Rest Stops, Reinvented
Highway rest stops aren't typically
known for their design credentials,
but South Korea is bent on making
them an art form. The Korea
Expressway Corp., which runs
the country's rest stops, launched
a renovation program to
make travel breaks more exciting.
One aim was to reflect local
culture with each design. Korean
designer Teo Yang's scheme for the
Mangyang rest stop, for example,
references the simple white and
timber-clad interiors of a traditional
hanok house. This gives the room a
courtyard-like layout with a display
of plants at the center. Culture isn't
the only influencer: Other rest stop
themes range from space travel to the
classic film Roman Holiday.

TOKYO,
JAPAN
A Common Language
A barrage of tourists will descend on Tokyo
in less than three years for the 2020 Summer
Olympics. To ensure spectators can find their
way from event to event, the Geospatial
Information Authority of Japan has revamped
18 common street symbols and map icons to
be more universally recognizable.
In the spirit of promoting further understanding
for foreign travelers, the Sanitary Equipment
Industry Association-a consortium of
plumbing-producing companies including
TOTO, Panasonic, and Toshiba-came
together in January to simplify and
standardize icons for the often-complicated
control panels on Japanese toilets and bidets,
according to Fast Company. These new icons
illustrate how to raise the lid, raise the seat, large flush,
small flush, rear spray, bidet, dry, and stop.

The Architect's Touch
When architects dip their toes into
product design, they often create something
pure that strips away decorative excess.
February's Stockholm Furniture and Light
Fair saw some extraordinary examples of
minimalistic creations: Pritzker Prizewinning French architect Jean Nouvel
unveiled a flooring collection by Swedish
company Bolon, with
a textural hand-woven
effect in a palette of
black, gray, red, and
blue. The straight
rod stainless steel
pendant light designed
by architect Andreas
Bozarth Fornell for
&Tradition also revealed
a minimal design.

ILLINOIS, USA
Food Hall Frenzy
Food halls may be a common
dining destination in Europe,
but in the United States, these
foodie havens are just starting to
boom. The number of food halls
in the country is expected to
double to 200 by 2020, according
to a November 2016 report
from Chicago-based real estate
company Cushman & Wakefield.
While having a roster of
quality vendors is certainly the first key to ensuring a high-traffic
hall, the design also contributes to the draw. "The most successful
operations in the market don't just embrace cutting-edge design
flourishes like industrial chic or exposed brick and timber
construction; their layouts tend to be outside the box," says the
report. The best layouts are generally more interactive, with more
common areas for social events.
