A U N Design Studio use "rope", a material that is necessary for a fisherman to decorate the ceiling of the MEEN restaurant using a simple technique i.e. tie a knot to receive the 3D effect as an installation art, the rope represents a fishermen life. This has made the cheap ordinary material more valuable and beautiful and reflects the context of the location of the MEEN restaurant.

A U N would like to set the example for the design product that it is not necessary to always use expensive material. However, with creative thinking, everyday use objects can be used in the design product. Moreover, the restaurants in Pattaya are highly competitive businesses, one of the considerations for the design is the cost, to choose a simple and cheap material has helped the project owner to manage the cost of the project efficiently.
