ImageJapanese Interior Design in Osaka

Designer : Kango Kama


layered wooden boards to createstriations inside this workspace and cafe for an online restaurant guide based in Osaka.Kengo Kuma designed the interiors of two spaces for Gurunavi: one that’s used as a physical base and information centre for the Japanese restaurant guide and another that serves as a cafe.The two spaces are both enclosed by glass walls on three sides and a solid wall at the back. They are separated by a tunnel that leads to further retail units at Osaka’s main railway station.


Design Rationale and Concept 

The idea of stacking up layers of different sizes of wood to create shelfs and tables everywhere combined with the walls. Less furnitures required more spare space.
