M’OISHÎ is the leading Japanese ice-cream provider in the GCC, bringing you a fine taste of authentic luxury in a panoply of exciting flavors. The client wants the concept to be inspired by the Japanese Traditions and should reflect the variety of its products in the design – colorful, authentic, and playful.
Incorporating all the Japanese elements in a small space is essential. But the main challenge is how to integrate the Mochi ice cream itself and its flavors on our design in a unique way. So we thought of producing a bamboo led lighting feature with changing colors so it can create a visual excitement and public engagement. The different colors represent all the flavors of the Japanese ice cream and the rounded lights signify the shape of Mochi.
The result of combining all the Japanese elements was remarkable. We used terrazzo and took it to the next level by adding a circular pattern and different shades that resembles a Zen Garden of rock and sand. On the wall, we have a Japanese mural that’s inspired by the florals of Kimono for a tranquil ambiance. For a touch of nature, we added a Bonsai Tree for harmony and balance. To reflect the traditions of making a rice dough, we used a wooden barrel as tables with a real rice grains inside. And to complete the overall concept, the bamboo rods were used as a ceiling feature with dimming technology that changes the café mood every minute. It delivers an exceptional piece and creates an instagrammable moment.
