Abstract fishermans’ nets are cast out across the vaulted ceiling, providing a canopy above the guests and casting shadows across the surfaces. These extend down to the entrances of the private Teppanyaki rooms. The impressive sake display at the sushi bar is reflected in dark smoky glass and surrounded by a wall of textured ceramic with soft dramatic lighting. Guests can choose to sit at the sushi bar and be served the freshest of sushi and sashimi selections, whilst watching the chefs prepare the various hot or cold sakes and sochos.
Ropes, knots and nets are subtly entwined in the interior to subliminally take the guests to sea, in a contemporary, textural envelope. The lighting creates a calm, yet exciting mood and the overall atmosphere of the restaurant, which is reflected in the design, is welcoming, innovative and different to your normal Japanese outlet.
Long reeds embedded in the glass panels and sliding doors to the individual teppanyaki rooms reflect the sea bed and create a privacy screen. These are lit from the floor level to create a soft dramatic light and to highlight the texture.
