Cross Cultural Communication Design – interiors and branding

Following on my ideas of Universality and cross cultural communication with a typographic aesthetic, I came across this example of typography being applied to interior design.

LAH! Restaurant, Madrid

Spanish interior architects Ilmio Design designed the interior of the restaurant. The restaurant merges different cultures, customs and languages from the region. As a feature, wood panels are place throughout the space with different Asian scripts laser cut out of them, particularly Thai, Cambodian and Jawi words (the latter is the ancient alphabet used in Malaysia and Indonesia).
