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”.
