Interior design firm Minus Workshop has shared their recently completed project, a restaurant in Hong Kong named “Takano Ramen”, whose design is inspired by Japanese mansion houses and layers of clay.
Stepping inside, you can immediately see the layers of various clays on the walls that create a warm atmosphere and guide people through the space.
The warm clay colors are complemented by curved chairs adorning the wood tables and bars.
The dining area has also been inspired by Japanese gardens, featuring ancient Japanese construction materials such as mudball pebble and timber.
Above some of the tables are natural pendant lights made of bamboo and paper by Ay illuminate. Various sizes of Noguchi sphere lanterns are also present in the interior.
A private VIP dining room is decorated with an oval shoji window balancing the linear design of the wood-accented walls.
