SAKEYA bar by Garde Italy, Milano – Italy

March 19th, 2017 by retail design blog

This project was born from a collaboration between three companies: GARDE Italy, Sake importation company based in Milan and Food business company from Tokyo. The aim is to create a place where Italian customers can experience traditional sake culture as they do in their Italian winery.

The space concept is in between traditional Japanese sake storage “Kura” and Italian wine storage “Enoteca”. With this mix, we created a façade with the traditional Kura element, which is a grid made by half cylinder. The interior is divided in three areas: Mini-shop, sake-cocktail bar and restaurant.

The wall is covered with wood scaffolding where sake bottles from all over Japan are exhibited, thanks to a partnership with different Japanese region promoting their own sake culture. To emphasize this traditional aspect of this space, all the furniture are antique pieces restored by Italian artesian.
