Morimoto restaurant by Schoos Design, Mexico City

July 4th, 2012 by retail design blog

Seeing the modernist design of the Camino Real Hotel in Mexico City, Thomas was inspired to create a restaurant inside that is literally a piece of modern art. The first challenge was the location itself: a large, cavernous room with a 75 foot high glass ceiling that would need to be divided into functional areas. Schoos achieved this by building an almost free-standing wooden structure that resembles a series of interlocking boxes – like a Japanese “bento” box turned on its side.

Into this restrained design, Schoos poured a variety of dramatic art pieces and custom-designed furnishings, each of which possesses its own artistic appeal. These include a series of massive canvases painted by Thomas and a rope art installation that winds through the whole restaurant, literally tying the design together.
