Seoul-based designer Jeonghwa Seo has constructed custom furniture to complement the raw concrete interior of Et Cetera, a cafe and wine bar.

Located on the ground floor of a corner block, the design of Et Cetera is striking in comparison to its urban surrounds. Set on a raised rough-cut concrete block, the space features two glass walls which offer passers-by a clear view into the artisanal-meets-industrial dining space. To complement the architectural design of the space, Seo designed pieces that share a similar unfinished quality. Working primarily with aluminum, oak, and brass, he created tables, seating, lamps, and plinths. “Et Cetera is a space where crafts, coffee, and wine are sold together”, Seo explains. “The clients asked that the entire space can be transformed flexibly.” Excluding the table for eight, and the inbuilt “tower of wine boxes”, Seo’s furniture allows the space to be adjusted as needed when moving from daytime service as a cafe, to nighttime service as a bar.
