Interior of the Japanese restaurant Fujiwara Yoshi by Ukrainian studio will compete in the category "Restaurant Design" with 21 projects from all over the world.
Fujiwara Yoshi is a Japanese restaurant with a Ukrainian soul. It is an 800 square meter maze designed to get lost in the greatness of Japanese culture and not even try to find a way out. Here, aesthetics waltzes with functionality, pipes become lamps, flowers grow from the ceiling, and moss — from the plates. It is a place to rest your eyes, hold your breath and savor Japan.
“For me and my colleagues, it took more than 10 years for the Ukrainian design to be appreciated. During the last few years, the market has made a big step further. Our studios win the prestigious international awards, and influential publishing houses call Ukrainian design the “new black”, — says Sergey Makhno, the founder of the studio.
