self-described as ‘a sexy version of izakaya’, the ‘bonobo’ restaurant in shanghai is equal parts night market, 80s taiwanese beer house, and iconic pop-culture archive. completed by the orangeblowfish, a shanghai-based branding and design agency, the izakaya eatery takes a light-hearted approach to client needs that results in an identity of memorable visual cues. small bites, monster flavor was the project’s motto, an idea that reaches its climax in a seven-meter mural featuring a functional neon laser blasting from godzilla’s mouth.
