Charged to accommodate both formal eating area and relaxation lounge in our interiors for Monsoon Restaurant, we created a startling contrast in mood – evolving two, opposing synthetic worlds, fire and ice.
Inspired by traditional ice buildings of Sapporo, a ground floor formal eating area features cool greys, materialized in glass and metal. Tables are reinvented as sharp fragments of ice, and a raised floor area drifts like an iceberg across the space.
Above whirls a furnace of fire within the relaxation lounge – rendered in searing reds, brilliant yellows and exuberant oranges as the lounge erupts from the floor, curling towards an upper-level dome with the power of a fiery tornado. A plasma of biomorphic sofas completes this startling restaurant experience.
