At 3,000 square metres, one of the largest motivational spaces in Thailand, Think Space B2S, at Central EastVille, has been voted the hippest place for meeting and creativity by book lovers, students, graduates and the young generation, with praise running high for its modern decor and customerfriendly reading space.



Now B2S is bringing the concept to the Northeast with the opening of “Think Space B2S Nakhon Ratchasima”. Designed around the concept “Afterschool Community”, it aims to be a source of inspiration and a new lifestyle living space for the young generation to work or study. Covering 1,100sqm, it’s located on the fourth floor of Central Plaza Nakhon Ratchasima.

 

Provincial Governor Vichian Chantharanothai was joined at the opening ceremony by several young executives and entrepreneurs from the region, including Marut Chumkhuntod, founder of Class Coffee, Alisa Saowakunphinyo, founder of Bewitched Board game cafe, and Nattha Soontornvinate of Double V Space, one of Thailand’s top interior designers. The event also featured a mini-concert by Suparuj Taechatanont, and Surattikan “Earn The Star” Phakcharoen.

 

Marut was full of praise for the space, saying it would help promote Korat or Nakhon Ratchasima as new landmark for lifestyle living rather than an industrial city. He’s set up the tenth branch of his coffee shop in Think Space. 

Alisa, founder of Bewitched Board Game Café, added that in her view “Think Space” had overcome the limitations of the traditional bookstore. 

 

“There are activities in the various zones that will spark the imagination and we hope to pass on new inspirations through game board activities to encourage those who live with digital technology around the clock to take a break from their devices. They can sit and play board games such as millionaire game, or do jigsaw puzzles. This allows people to build facetoface relationships while also enhancing creativity and analysis skills. Being part of Think Space is a great opportunity.”
