Traditional Japanese interior design has a unique artistic derived by the cultures in Edo period, which commonly uses wood as the main element, as well as perfectly balances both aesthetic and functional purposes. To bring the classy and old Japanese traditions to moderncity, 5DS design team demonstrates a perfect example in Tenkei Izakaya by creatively integrates traditional symbols into its stylish interiors.
The prelude to the Edo-themed Izakaya is a “time tunnel” which is simulated by a spacious, high-end, and modern corridor with curved wood ceilings and orange-red lightings. After walking through the “time tunnel", the first thing one notices is a blend of different old Japanese elements in the grand restaurant. Windows are decorated with a stripe pattern of hemp ropes which symbolize rice culture in ancient japan. The same array of wooden cuboids on the walls and ceilings are from the inspirations of Shoji. By combining all elements with the eye-catching painting of Geisha, an authentic Japanese interior is well-presented in the restaurant.
The cleverest twist in this design is converting the restaurant to a night club in the night-time by using a changeable light setting and reflective squares on ceilings. By turning up the red light and combining with Japanese decorations in the bar, a special integration of ancient and contemporary style offers everybody an impressive night.
