Mays Vegetarian Restaurant

The Mays, as a borderless creative vegetarian restaurant, launches cross-border innovation by bringing together food cultures from around the world. The Mays breaks the conventional ideas of people with food, so in this space, the designer wanted to break the rules as well. There is a legend that eating vegetarian food will make the human body grow backwards, so the designer designed an "inversed time and space". The metaphorical elements of the earth are inverted on the entire roof, and the magnificence of the earth is extended infinitely by mirroring.

Chen Ling, the designer of this project, who set up his own studio, YesDesign Studio, in Beijing between 2007 and 2008. He is really interested in how to perceive a space within the qualities of another space. It just like looking at someone who is looking at you. When objectivity is eliminated, a new objectivity can be achieved, as if you were measuring a space with your vision. This is his design philosophy. He specializes in design styles: thematic spaces, modern thematic spaces, using spatial form to tell the brand story.
