Ryoji IEDOKORO ARCHITECTURE OFFICE
Located in the heart of Tokyo’s fashionable Roppongi district, Nikunotoriko, a yakiniku restaurant, cannot help but stand out. The design is made to provide a dining experience reconnecting the human back to nature, embodying its concept of providing an immersive, emotive experience. The first floor resembles a cave-like setting, where you can eat like our ancient ancestors did. The walls are constructed to look like a real cave wall. The herringbone glass floor represents the flowing of water, and under the table you will find and feel gravel made of glass that gives you the experience as if you are really sitting near a river. The second floor features earth and greenery. You are surrounded by trees made of steel pipes which serves as hangers for your jacket or bag that makes it appear like flowers in vibrant colours, and the walls are covered in greenery. The tables and floor are made of multi-layered OSB panels which has contour lines. The tables on different levels allows you to have the privacy with your friends that makes the dining experience more memorable and private. The venue has not only an eye-catching experience, but the realistic touch stimulates all your senses.
