TOKii, an all-day multifunctional restaurant at The Prince Akatoki London hotel, is designed to be a destination restaurant for both guests at the hotel as well as locals.
Its carefully contemplated materials including basalt bricks, metals and light and dark carved timbers, harmonise to emit a sophisticated atmosphere. This complements the modern take on the Japanese cuisine served at the restaurant that includes a sushi counter and robata grill.
Timber is dominantly used throughout, with the juxtaposition of light and dark carved timbers complemented by the basalt brick sushi counter front and concrete countertop.
The luxury feel of the restaurant is extended by a liquid metal debossed fish motif that commands attention above the sushi bar.
Noren and timber screens divide the restaurant, creating intimacy and elegant sectioning of the space.
We curated the materials and furniture to be a sensual amalgamation of texture and natural tones.
A flexible, sleek and engaging dining space was created by including comfortable timber banquette seating and high sushi counter stools.
'When we rebranded from a British hotel to a Japanese hotel, the task we put to the team at B3 was monumental. The brief we gave them was to encapsulate the attention to detail as found in Japanese culture and bring that into the hotel. From day one our expectations were quite significantly exceeded. Each team member at B3, led by Mark, are not only fantastic designers but artists in the field of creating an ambience that fits the ideas we had on paper. Thank you, Mark and team!'
