Setsugekka Japanese Cuisine is a 1,300㎡ restaurant located in China, Changchun designed by Shanghai Hip-pop Architectural Decoration Design Co. The studio designed the interior in order to influence people’s thoughts and behavioral pattern across the restaurant.
Conveying the customer’s core values and aspirations, the restaurant itself reflects the “setsugekka,” a vital aspect of Japanese culture that refers to the seasons of the year: blue-white (winter), yellow-white (autumn) and pink-white (spring). Each hue dictates the essence of the restaurant by using the colors in vivid LED lights around the interior space.

The Luminaire Project, our first full length project at University lasting almost 3 months long. PYRA is being exhibited at the Light and Build fair this year in Frankfurt.
Funded by Xicato, Mike Stoane Lighting and the LET (Lighting Education Trust), we were given the task of designing a luminaire for either a domestic or commercial environment whilst sticking to the style and product themes of the mentioned companies.
