Kyubi, London

A Japanese restaurant that fuses European mid-century design with the opulence of the Meiji period. The scheme balances Japanese arts & crafts details with the more utilitarian character of European modernism to create a cultured and quietly glamorous dining experience.

 

The main dining area features a panoramic hand-painted scenery of Japanese fishermen on the Nagara River flooded with mint lily pads, forming the backdrop to our dining scene. The main dining sculptural chandelier is composed of iron strokes representative of Japanese calligraphy and suspended glass blocks; casting fluid beams of light onto our colonial linen ceilings.

The historic synthesis of cultural heritage and styles is echoed throughout the studio’s interpretation of Kyubi. Within the design scheme traditional Japanese arts and crafts merge seamlessly with colonial western influences and mid-century minimalism to create a vibrant, immersive interior to pair with the Japanese menu of sushi, sashimi and tempura. 

The restaurant opens up into a lively, open Robata, Sushi and Tempura counter where the theatricality of the chefs takes centre stage.
