The gleaming aluminium and orange seating are classic diner fare, but this Seoul burger joint has some futuristic touches up its sleeve.
Located in the city’s famous Gangnam neighbourhood, Super Duper Burgers blends retro references with some more unexpected design choices – including metallic tiles and smart lighting that mimics the sunset colours of San Francisco, where the brand was founded.
Local firm Betwin Space Design created the interiors, which revolve around a concept the studio calls ‘Hyper Slow’ – a blend of fast food and the idea of slow living. The exterior of the burger bar mixes distinctly retro graphic design with a pixellated-style tile covering, but the restaurant’s futuristic atmosphere becomes apparent once inside.
Guests are greeted by gleaming steel and plastic chairs, cafe-stye tables and an abundance of strip lighting, which emphasises the tiled walls and bright orange counter. Downstairs has more of a vintage feel, while upstairs diners can bask under the glow of Super Duper Burger’s sunset lighting, which reflects off a mosaic of tiny chrome wall tiles.
