DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
RICO Spanish Dining in Tokyo, Japan

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Restaurant

INSPIRATION:
Each city in Spain presents a different face. We actually visited Spain and brought back our inspiration to form these designs. If we should call these designs original, we have prepared the following story to create each area. That is, “By observing tradition from generation to generation, will preserve the tradition and at the same time will generate the owner’s avocation and identity. And this new usage will bring other unexpected arranges”.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Common concept is ”Tradicional e Imprevisto” which is, “traditional and unexpected”, in other words, “tradition and unpredictable”. And the ratio is ”tradition 8:unpredictable2”. We together with our client decided this rule (the ratio), and have achieved a successful outcome. We were able to make a sense of unity in spite of creating various scenes in one restaurant. By connecting the exotic feelings from the originals and our present moment designs lead to this result.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Spanish Dining・Rico faces the sunken garden located on the first basement floor of a Building in Japan. This area seems to be abounding in businessmen, yet there are wide category range of people such as overnight guests from neighbor hotels and tourists.  This Rico has four time zone styles to generate the different usage motivation. They are, during lunch, café, dinner and holiday time.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in May 2014 in Tokyo and finished in December 2014. This restaurant is opened 11a.m. to midnight everyday.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Interior Space and Exhibition Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
To mention the bar counter. These tiles have distinctive patterns that are similar to oil paintings which were the perfect matches for this art-like bar counter. Difficulty arose when it was not too easy to stick these tiles to the organic shaped counter. Wherein, we stuck these original tiles onto the straight face of the counter from the staff side as possible. Then we put the tiles that are cut into quarter size of the original square tiles and then cut the new sized shapes into other quarter size squares, and so on. This counter’s curved form and the orderly lined up tiles brought a contrast and thus have created an impressive structure.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Original pendant light / 1180mm x 1180mm x 650mm / 2W LED x 8 pieces Custom made arms light / 500mm x 4500mm x 2475mm / 6W LED x9 arms

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Each city in Spain presents a different face. This indeed is the Spain. We actually visited some cities in Spain and brought back our inspiration to form these designs.

CHALLENGE:
My challenge come in sight, the standing lights with 9 arms. In this area, tables can be arranged in any order. So we came up with the idea of using adjustable standing lights. These lights will cover a wide range of area. It can light 4500mm maximum length. We set the height of the lights by considering the pipes, connecting wires, and lighting’s weight, plus the post and the arm’s supporting point in order to calculate the pipe pliancy. When all worked out as calculated, it was indeed the time we felt the benefit of designing.
