Central Pinklao, Bangkok, Thailand.
The 70sqm restaurant holds affordable premium steakhouse for Thai people inspired by the food culture of Kobe city, Japan. Concept of the design is to change a mindset of most Thai people that have recognised a sit down dining steak as luxurious and overpriced meal. The more casual and friendly design is set to offer new experience of eating steak, cheeky railway track painted flooring leads all clients from the asphalt shingle roofed front canopy to all tables where the kitchen sits at the back hiding behind corrugated metal panels, as a skin of tradition train bogie, creating enclosure for customers to sit as in the train station. Black colour mainly stands for modern but calm enough to emphasise lattice woods as a pattern representing craft and art, to make a whole restaurant dynamically moves. Burgundy red colour drops soul to the restaurant clarifying the brand identity and life.
