inside this japanese restaurant in st. petersburg, russia, the most distinctive feature is the wooden element which envelopes one side of the wall and the entire ceiling. designed by DA architects, their objective was to keep the 80 sqm restaurant interior neutral and simple.

in total, 400 wooden triangles have been installed, representing DA architects‘ concept of creating an interior ‘shell’. references to asia is seen subtly through the clay pots decorating the walls and the bamboo place mats. the material and décor choice for the rest of kido sushi bar follows the designers’ decision to leave the space simple. the muted grey and blue color scheme projects focus onto the geometric, three-dimensional feature which ultimately, introduces visual expression and directing people’s gaze to the longitudinal stretch of the floor plan.
