Dongshang is a Japanese restaurant and bar composed of bamboo in varying forms and sizes, located in Beijing.
The project vision was to create a unique dining environment by intertwining Japanese aesthetics with elements of Chinese culture.
The traditional bamboo material, which has strong connections to arts and crafts of the two countries, covers the walls and ceilings to create an intimate ambience.
The natural and sustainable material symbolises the anti-urban philosophy in the Seven Sages of the Bamboo Grove, and the interior evokes the feeling of dining within a bamboo grove.
This project has been longlisted in the bar interior category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
