Tajimaya Shabu Shabu restaurant by STUDIO C8, Hong Kong

April 23rd, 2017 by retail design blog

Tajimaya Shabu Shabu, which is a Japanese hot pot dining, is a new project from STUDIO C8 long standing client. We were delighted to be asked to create their new brand restaurant in the after-dark shopping hub of amp mall in Kwun Tong, Hong Kong. The mall houses over 170 shops and restaurants which close at midnight and to provide the needs of the young, hip and trendy generations.

Inspired by a Yoshokuya (it is a restaurant of Yoshoku, that refers to a style of Western-influenced cooking which originated during the Meiji Restoration in Japan), the design scheme holds a warm and nostalgic feeling at that time. The overall interior style of Yoshokuya is influenced by European cafe in the late 19th century. We created the space that was based on the style of Yoshokuya with contemporary accents.

On entrance, the skeletal timber structured wall provided to display greenery and the original decoration objects of the brand. Handmade styled tiles were selected for the upper part of the walls and natural oak was applied for the timber panelling with red coloured line. The graphics painted mirror frames were hanging on the wall to create the ambience of European cafe. The earthy tones materials and simple design style are to create an environment that would change the eating experience of Japanese food as before.
