Tsujita restaurant by Takeshi Sano, Los Angeles

August 26th, 2011 by retail design blog

Japanese designer Takeshi Sano of SWeet Co. Ltd. has created a ceiling design, using thousands of wooden sticks, in the Tsujita restaurant in Los Angeles, California.

Description from the designer: I put image of clouds for the ceiling detail. There is IZUMO shrine, one of the most important shrine in Shimane Japan. The clouds we can see there, has beauty but mysterious image. I wanted to show those images on this design. I put 25000 of wooden sticks, which was shaped like drum stick on the ceiling.

In order to increase a reality of clouds, I calculate the focal length between eye line and wooden sticks and use that length for the stick length. Also I made difference on the distance between stick each other so that to make a stereoscopic effect to wooden cloud. Not only for this project. I’m always challenging to create a space that coexist art and interior.

At the same time, I’d like people to feel the delicate of beauty, which Japanese have, and Japanese atmosphere when they visit here so that they will think that they want to visit Japan. I’d like to make this restaurant as one of an element for Japanese reconstruction.
