Atmosphere and detail became complemented with one another and no longer were indistinguishable whether which design came firsthand. For instance, the words wave or ship link directly to seafood and thus we have converted these design motif to modern tiles and antique woods. Furthermore, making casual atmosphere line from the height of the ceiling to the partition, and utilizing gimmick by the presence or absence of the pendant illuminants have enabled to divide the atmosphere moderately.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
We adopted the concept “cut-and-paste-able design” in this restaurant. In order to operate multi-restaurant, it is invaluable to use fine pieces of protean combination designs. We have designed to integrate stand-light for the big table so that it works out just as fine as it is placed by itself.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in April 2016 in Yokohama Japan and finished in November 2016. And this is the first restaurant of multi-restaurant operation brand "Il Mare".

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
New brand “Il Mare” with the future prospects of multi-restaurant operation provides mainly seafood, categorized as bar restaurant.
To start off with, upon designing this restaurant, focusing on the urban atmosphere and reflecting upgraded values were the primary themes. The “atmosphere” and “detail” that come from materials and technical styles were the two perspectives when developing this design in total.
SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Big table: W3000 mm x D1150 mm x H1000 mm
Custom made chair: W530 mm x D545 mm x H780 mm

For instance of "cut-and-paste-able design”, we have designed to integrate stand-light for the big table so that it works out just as fine as it is placed by itself. Moreover, the arch-formed shape that connects the column and the ceiling will become one piece of the design and will surely go well above the bench and the bar counter.
As a matter of fact, three more restaurants have already been completed, and this “cut-and-paste-able design” has exerted a beneficial effect. We have an appreciation that this new method may have become the central to branding.
