Kengo Kuma and Associates designed the Shun*Shoku Lounge in Tokyo, Japan. The 1000 square foot multipurpose creative space was created for Gurunavi, a Japanese restaurant guide that links top-class (gourmet) restaurants and people passionate about exclusive and sophisticated food.
Description by Kengo Kuma and Associates:
We piled up pieces of wooden panels to build the interior like topography. Various kinds of food-related items are laid out on this wooden ground. We expected that the chemistry would be just right for eating and the wooden stratum.
Layered configuration has also been designed for V&A at Dundee. This lounge is in a way like a nesting inside V&A.
