Wooden Triangles Dominate the Neutral Interior of Kido Sushi Bar by DA Architects
DA architects cover the ceiling and one side wall of Kido Sushi bar in St. Petersburg, Russia, with 400 wooden triangles, slightly varying in their unit dimensions, to be the main feature of the Japanese restaurant. The interior shell concept aims to give a distinct look to the interior while maintaining its generally neutral atmosphere achieved by the use of achromatic scale for the walls, chairs, and décor.
Those wooden triangles along with the wooden table tops complete the unified, dynamic yet serene image of the place. The 3D units of the wooden shell, also, directs the eyes of the viewer towards the longitudinal 80m2 floor plan, with its light gray flooring only contradicted with black furniture elements.
The designers referred to the Asian origin of the restaurant by using simple elements like the clay pots on the wall, the bamboo mats, and the exotic plants’ places in simple pots. Also, the lighting of the place, the alternation between the black polished walls, reflecting the triangular pattern, and the white mute walls, in addition to the black suede texture of the seats, give the restaurant its unique character.
