Foo restaurant Japanese theme inspired interiors

Concocted by Ar. Sumessh Menon and his team from Sumessh Menon Associates, the design of the entire space has a distinctively Asian essence blended with hints of contemporary design highlighted furthermore by the richly rustic looking backlit arches set against rich burgundy walls that line several walls of the entire restaurant. Inspired by the traditional Japanese rice wine also called as saké, there is an entire wall decked up as a saké jar display that greets you at the very entrance of the restaurant hinting at the richly Japanese theme of the entire space.

Japanese theme restaurant

The main bar displays an intricate Asian inspired backlit wooden screen apron with a rich burgundy laminum tile countertop. Touches of modern Asian design are seen on the wall opposite the bar too which displays a row of wooden panels with modern abstract carvings on it, setting a warm and distinctive backdrop for the pod seating area. The restaurant flooring is done entirely in custom terrazzo cast flooring with metal pattern inlay whereas the ceiling of the restaurant is one of the most unique of its kinds wherein the designers have retained the original saw tooth roofing of the old mills adding such an earthy and authentic vibe to the entire space! It is this ability of Menon’s to transform the aesthetic sensibility of a space according to the site conditions and the project brief that adds to the charm of the interior design.

Further ahead the restaurant closes in to form a more intimate dining area divided by more arched walls and a stunning cherry blossom tree standing as an ode to all things Japanese! Another arrestingly unique design feature is the gorgeous custom light installation designs across the entire restaurant especially the Abacus lights hung above the bar, crafted entirely of crushed banana paper, lending an ethereal charm to the space.

The exquisite synthesis of raw terrazzo floors, rust coloured walls and even the cane-cladded ceiling set against a deep colour palette of burgundy, mushroom and grey lends an authentic Asian feel to the restaurant that inevitably enhances the overall dining experience manifold!

The entire elegant space is masterfully crafted with selection of diverse materials that are seemingly disparate but together build a cohesive design language throughout the space. This blend of elements and influences creates a beautifully balanced and harmonized dining experience. With its promising menu, FOO is an ultra-chic urban oasis, an ode to Japanese culinary delights.
