Embodying the surging “K-Wave” that’s enveloped our world, STARR Restaurants’ KPOD translates Korean ingenuity into a singular dining experience. Vivacious and vibrant with subtle Seoul-inspired touches, the clean and contemporary University City space is the ideal showcase for chef Peter Serpico, who channels his Korean-American heritage to craft a knowledgeable but non-traditional take on the cuisine. A Philadelphia restaurant that honors the past and the future in equal stead, KPOD is a celebration of the culture-defining spirit of South Korea.
L'Observatoire International has been invited by Starr Restaurants to develop the lighting scheme for the KPod restaurant in Philadelphia, designed by Stokes Architecture + Design.
L’Observatoire International created the lighting design for the restaurant, including the upper bar, lower sushi counter bar, dining areas, private dining "pods" and amenities.
