RICCA is a bar, located at Kagurazaka.  Even now, there are Japanese traditional atmosphere and alley in this town. I created this design to express Japanese aesthetic sense. In Japan, there is cultural event is known as “Hanami”, which means “cherry blossom viewing”. This unique event is happened only in couples of week of early spring. Inspired by this moment, I designed this bar with beauty, glamorous, strength and fragility of Hanami. To express Hanami’s impression, using a resin with hologram sheets with laser cut as fluttering flowers. Hinging the hologram objects from the ceiling and put the light from both inside and outside. And also, I create two areas. One is lounge area that has atmosphere with glamorous and beauty, the other is private karaoke room area that has active side of Hanami, like energy, strength and more. This is the design that modern-interpreted Japanese traditional unique event “Hanami”.
