envisioned by shanghai hip pop design, the interior of ‘omakase’ restaurant has been built to envelop guests in swathes of pink cherry blossom. situated within a renovated business center in shanghai, the brief required the creation of a space fit for the ‘romantic’ kaiseki cuisine that is served inside. as a traditional and high-quality japanese food, the team chose to complement the dishes by taking inspiration from ‘sakura rain’ – the phenomenon of cherry blossom petals falling gently to the ground in the breeze.

in a bid to encompass patrons in the ‘sakura rain’ concept, the design team has planned the space using pink, semi-transparent partitions and illuminated floors. decorated with flowers and dewdrop motifs, the glass separations intend to surround visitors in the falling petals of cherry blossom, resulting in a tranquil setting to sit back and enjoy the fine cuisine. these glazed walls also function to form a delicate balance between openness and mystery, as people can see through but not enough to encroach on the privacy of others.

on the first floor, the space comprises a core element that houses the stairwell and a private dining room. with it’s warm, glowing yellow color, it stands out amongst the pink interior, providing clear direction to the upper level. this solid block is also formed to allow a group to enjoy a more intimate experience. overall, with its soft lighting and material palette, the design by shanghai hip pop intends to wrap guests in the romantic surroundings of dancing cherry blossom petals, perfectly befitting the japanese cuisine of kaiseki.
