She Gu Design Office has designed the interiors of a restaurant that revives interest in food eaten in the ancient past.
The intention of the restaurant founder was to encourage modern people to regain the awe of food, specifically the taste of ancient food. The restaurant explores the nature of food and the ritual sense of food.
In a fast-paced business life, diners are immersed in the restaurant, where they can talk to others, talk to food, and reflect by themselves.
The pared-back, refined appearance of the space has been designed to not distract diners from engagement and conversation with each other, or contemplation by themselves.
The fusion of the commercial space with wabi-sabi aesthetics produced an artistic building and flexible interior space.
This project has been longlisted in the restaurant interior category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
