Holbein’s Sushi Bar
Frankfurt am Main 2012
With just three defining components, we created this novel sushi bar in Frankfurt’s Städel Museum.
At the core of this design, a storey high structure clad in wooden vanes that stripe across the the exterior, evoking the flesh of fresh fish. A smoked glass panel separates the sushi-chef’s working area from the dining area, a solid white carrara marble counter. Backlit perforated screening with oriental objets d’art, an indirectly lit half-height wall, and kimono fabric upholstered seating, together create a light, airy, Japanese atmosphere in this eatery nestling in the basement of the world renowned Holbein’s restaurant.
