B3 Designers were asked to develop a space continuing Bone Daddies’ known and loved rock ‘n’ roll attitude and Japanese street-scene tone.
Each restaurant in the 7-strong Bone Daddies group (inclusive of sister restaurant Flesh & Buns) delivers a distinctive experience created specifically to mix both Japanese and London contemporary culture.
Specialising in beautifully crafted Japanese-inspired food, the restaurant creates a contemporary culture exclusive to London.
The character reflects a bold, brash and loud character that helps introduce Bone Daddies as a uniquely memorable approach to Japanese dining.
A mixture of materials, textures and graphics were used to express the rock ‘n’ roll vibe.
This revealed the use of exposed raw metalwork and traditional Japanese graphics with applied spray paint.
Contrasting rich-toned timbers were used for the host stations and countertops. Other elements are left uncovered to showcase scaffold-pole table legs and staircase fixings.
Reclaimed lights create a display of hung pendants in the front window and above the dining tables, creating an interesting and inviting feel both diners and diners-to-be.
References were pulled from the chaotic street scene of any densely-populated downtown Japanese city with intensely clustered signage.
The ground floor walls are clad in antique mirror with reclaimed timber uprights to shelter the space and replicate the façade of old Japanese street shops. Upstairs the central canopy feature floats above two large oak-top tables with suspended noren panels to create a sense of privacy.
The smashed up tiles in the WC cubicles continue the bold and brash character of the street-scene feel.
