At Tanoon Mai, street food is not only served but celebrated. The restaurant, specialised in Thai street food, is located in Chatswood, in Australia and was designed by Studio VIE. Conceived for travelling with the mind (along with the palate), the Tanoon Mai combines the style of street vendor vans used in Thailand with that of colonial houses widespread in Southeast Asia. The atmosphere is determined by the cobblestones floor that reproduces a city street and the natural wood furniture. But what draws the most attention is the patchwork of colourful shutters that lines the walls of the restaurant. This colourful backdrop is not just a decorative expedient, but also an ingenious system of displaying products for sale and shelves where the waiters can place plates and glasses. The lanterns hanging from the ceiling also suggest Thailand, original lights that reflect traditional forms but exploit LED technology. At the Tanoon Mai restaurant ethnic dishes and fusion environment make it is easy to take flights of imagination, dreaming of distant lands.

The Moodboarders is a glance into the design world, which, in all of its facets, captures the extraordinary even within the routine. It is a measure of the times. It is an antenna sensitive enough to pick-up on budding trends, emerging talents and neglected aesthetics. Instead of essays, we use brief tales to tune into the rhythm of our world. We travelled for a year without stopping, and seeing as the memory of this journey has not faded, we have chosen to edit a printed copy. We eliminated anything episodic, ephemeral or fading, maintaining a variety of articles that flow, without losing the element of surprise, the events caught taking place, and the creations having just bloomed.
