salmon pink and copper leaves adorn kentool's sushi shop in milan

in the heart of the milanese chinatown, kentool has redesigned a small poke shop, sushifun. the clients and owners of the space, two young entrepreneurs in the food sector, expressed the need to characterize the restaurant with a strong symbolic and recognizable graphic language, which is meant to become the reference point for future sales points of the brand.

the designers covered the small space with a customized wallpaper, recognizable from the street, and also included its signature light salmon hue in the exterior sign. the walls boast illuminated oak niches that house works by emerging artists, adding depth to the wallpaper. other surfaces throughout the interiors are treated with dove-gray microcement, copper leaves and have engravings that resemble wallpaper designs.

the floor anchored in micro cement is divided into six bays and presents a drawing of a fishbone interspersed with pink bands of three centimeters. the main counter is placed in a three-meter high niche, from which infinito light by davide groppi connects to the main glazing. a second infinite light perpendicular to the first crosses the entire room, both illuminating the pink ceiling.

the second counter near the window is suspended to make the flooring visible even from the outside. the restaurant also includes pedrali tribeca high chairs, whose clean lines match the minimal yet sophisticated interior design. the restaurant is characterized by an intimate and convivial atmosphere due to the subtle, chromatic range of finishes and the use of different warm light sources that produce an inviting effect.
