teamlab creates interactive restaurant interior that changes with the seasons

 

art collective teamlab has created an immersive interactive restaurant in tokyo’s ginza district. the exclusive eatery, which serves just eight guests per day, provides diners with a unique multi-sensory experience that conveys the tastes, smells, and scenic beauty of japan. the immersive space combines elegant cuisine and ceramic art with real-time projections that canvas the restaurant’s walls and tables.

located inside ‘saga beef restaurant SAGAYA ginza‘, teamlab’s new installation is titled ‘worlds unleashed and then connecting’. ‘when a dish is placed on the table, the scenic world contained within the dish is unleashed, unfolding onto the table and into the surrounding space,’ say the designers. ‘for example, a bird painted on a ceramic dish is released from the dish and can perch on the branch of a tree that has been unleashed from a different dish.’

the sizes and shapes of the projected objects are also affected by the other dishes on the table. this creates an environment of constant change, designed to reflect japan’s changing seasons. furthermore, the projections are influenced by the diners’ behavior. ‘if you are still, a tiny bird might alight on your hand; if you move suddenly, it might fly away,’ explains teamlab. the restaurant’s menu and presentation, which changes monthly, includes a 12-course meal with dishes including black wagyu beef and seasonal vegetables.

  • Beautiful and hypnotizing but as long as the effects go over the food, I can’t imagine a major chef wanting to host such a display.
