Sake No Hana

Client: Sake No Hana
Main Contractor: Goodman Hitchens Ltd
Design: Kengo Kuma and Associates/ Denton Corker Marshall

kaizen was a major player in the creation of the new restaurant at 23 St. James Street, The Economist Building, designed by the Smithsons in the sixties.

kaizen created a foyer reception desk with booking stand and coat storage, two wine cabinets, the private dining tables and chairs, bar stools with elevated tables, d-ended banquettes, 2-6 seater dining tables and all restaurant chairs at Sake No Hana.

Developing the challenging design concepts with world renowned designer Kengo Kuma, we used tinted oiled maple for all chair and table frames and tops, full grain leather for all seating and lava stone for the bar tables. Wine cabinets were produced from bronzed mesh so they would become iconic pieces in front of the full glass facade. The striking reception desk was clad in black laminated mirror glass with UV bonded, blind miter joints and black stainless steel feature trims. We also produced a polyester booking stand which now features in various Hakkasan restaurants around the world.
