Tecchan Yakitori by Kengo Kuma restaurant - Tokyo, Japan
A big fan of Kengo Kuma, the owner of this pocket-sized yakitori bar in Tokyo’s hip neighbourhood Kichijoji, managed to inspire even the master architect, when he took him to visit Nakadai- a company that specialises in reusing industrial waste. Kuma immediately fell in love with the bundles of bright LAN cables and irregular blobs of melted acrylic that defines the two floors of the bar; on the first floor, cables have been randomly stapled to the walls, used as shades for the light bulbs and even ironed to readymade tables and chairs, while the ground floor is almost pristine in contrast, with a custom-made acrylic counter, tables and chairs and a mural by graphic designer Teruhiko Yumura.
