I designed a long counter table around an open kitchen, inspired by Japanese Sushi/Teppan-yaki counter, giving diners a front-row view of all the chef’s activities. It is like a theater, and I named it “TEATRO” that means “theater” in Italian. I designed indirect lighting with a steel grid over the counter table, so the lighting shines onto the basement floor like sunshine. A wall of steel shelves between the restaurant and the bar sometimes interrupts and sometimes passes the view to each diner, so the wall forms a tie, whilst cutting space. I tried to design a pleasing space where elegance and relaxation come together well, by using some materials which are rustic but also elegant and simple in design.
