Sushi Restaurant with Origami Lights


A very trendy and stylish suspended light fixture in restaurant made by Nir Portal Architects & Liat Essig became starting point for the decor.




‘One sushi’, is situated in the heart of very popular hi-tech offices area – Tel Aviv. Inspired by clean traditional Japanese design, ‘One’ preserves that tradition. Elements of design were chosen carefully, layout was drawn minimalistic, colors pallets become monochromatic with a light lemongrass touch. To follow the breeze of japan culture, origami tradition, we created a dramatic lighting interpretation, preformed as ‘barisol’ stretched lighted ceiling and a suspended custom made light fixture. Materials of lighting simulate the traditional rice paper. Layout was designed to enable flexible groups and couples sitting, as per office area demands. Large counter for take-away transforms to sharing table by night. Walls are covered with 3mm thin black porcelain large tiles, divided horizontally with led light panels. Along with the ceiling and origami lighting, thus elements are projected to street and become the atmosphere billboard. The kitchen and WC entrance view were separated by partition panel, made of a metal frame and two layers of glass with Japanese natural fabric in between. Unlighted parts of the ceiling were painted in black to achieve infinity feeling. Wood flooring gives a balanced warmth atmosphere to space.
