Interiors for Sushi Restaurant
This is the plans and drawings from the re-decoration proposal we made for the sushi/tapas restaurant in central Copenhagen.
• Logo and Visual Identity
• Concept for Print, Packaging and Signage
• Concept for Interior Design
We wanted to make a night club setting on the lower floor for the new cocktail bar and at the same we wanted the whole restaurant to be welcoming enough to attract the main-stream shopping crowd passing through the inner city during day time. The night club setting made us think of purple, black and gold and inspired by the feeling of the Tom Dixon Beat Light Lamps (which we also included as part of the furnishing) we twisted the gold into a bronze. The graphic pattern from the identity was cut out in bronze colored steel plates and used for custom-made wall lamps, candlelight holders, room dividers/screens and the signage on the storefront.
Central to the upstairs room is the room-divider/screen at the stairs. The stair screen is inspired by the japanese way of making transparent walls (see the works of the talented japanese architect Kengo Kuma for further reference).
As an extra feature we made the bar table at the back of the room slide down the wall and turn into a bench for sitting.
Behind the bar on the lower floor we placed an image of some decorative leaves in purple shades and backlit the whole wall, which gives the whole lower floor a nice ambient purple-shaded light.
The style for benches, tables and stools are simple scandinavian/japanese-like. We chose benches and high tables on the entrance floor for the quick-snack shopping customer, and more comfortable chairs by the cocktail bar on the lower floor.
