Logo designed by Studio FNT for South Korean dessert restaurant Milk Lab

Milk Lab is a 100% pure milk dessert, flake and roll cake restaurant located in the South Korean city of Busan.

These all share a conceptual, graphic and material interest as well as a commitment to documenting and sharing projects.

Five studios stood out for the range and extent of their work, and their balance of concept, clear communicative intention and compelling aesthetic and material expressions, and have made it into BP&O’s Best of Series. These are some of BP&O’s favourites, listed in no particular order.
