ABOUT

Opera is a noble art originated in Italy, the restaurant uses its modern genre Operetta, light opera as its name to parallel authenticity of their classic Italian cuisine presented in a modern tone. The design combines stage concepts of performing arts seen in the old and modern days. The layout evolves around an idea to let customers see chefs and mixologists perform. Seeing is the interactive medium to link up performers and audience. The use of metaphorical Eye illustrates this concept.

Kaiseki Den, serves Kaiseki cuisine which is a tribute to transcendental meditation. The design employs simple shapes in a three-dimensional perspective for a modest and peaceful vibe. To bring out the concept of original state of nature associated with Kaiseki and its Zen philosophy, simple, soft sandy or earthy colours, natural materials, coarse marble floor are used. They are a visual pacifier to manifest a calm mind and customers are in a brief retreat from the busy city.
