Tokyo Restaurant Decorated with Recycled Cables
Designed by Japanese artist and architect Kengo Kuma, this bar-restaurant located in Kichijoji outside Tokyo is adorned withheaps of colored recycled cables."We designed the interior for a small Yakitori bar that sits on the edge of the street. It is mostly made of recycled materials. We applied recycled LAN cables, which we call Mojamoja – to describe its shaggy, wooly look – and what is called acrylic ball (left-over melted acrylic byproduct pieces) to everything from interior materials to furniture. As the result, some amazing interior emerged, where form becomes invisible and only materiality and various colors appear as if floating in the air. It also came to match well with the wall painting by Teruhiko Yumura."
