Shukufuku Japanese Bento restaurant by Rptecture Architects, Melbourne – Australia

July 27th, 2016 by retail design blog

Shukufuku is a Japanese Bento restaurant located on Lygon Street, Melbourne; a bustling street infamous for its restaurant and food culture. The interior space is a charismatic representation of their brand. Featuring a visually dynamic ceiling feature, a youthful lighting strategy, and an oversized steel frame Maneki-neko; the space is a bright, fun addition to the Melbourne CBD. The client required a fresh, bright environment with a fun, inviting atmosphere.

Using their geometric brand logo as inspiration, a visually dynamic design language emerged. Featuring natural materials such as timber and rope, the neutral toned materials palette is juxtaposed with ‘pops’ of their corporate colours, blue and yellow. Highlighting Shukufuku’s strong brand identity, geometric features were included throughout the interior. From the subtle diamond shaped wall tiles, to the oversized pendant lights; the interior is continually reinforcing the Shukufuku brand identity. The star of the show is the faceted ceiling feature, which is made of over 20 different panels. The custom-made individual and communal dining tables feature ‘colour blocked’ sections which segment the tables, as inspired by the compartmentalised nature of the ‘bento’.
