We were approached by True World Foods who are the major fish suppliers to Japanese and Korean restaurants throughout the UK. They had just purchased the warehouse next door and wanted to create an events space, supermarket and sushi demonstration space.
The challenge then was to try and make a cool space that incorporated a supermarket but did not look like a typical supermarket. We decided the best way forward was to use a minimal pallet but use high end finishes such as marble and various powder coated metals. We designed many unique elements such as the surrounds for the fridges, the knife display which runs the full length of the supermarket space and two bars, one for sushi demonstrations and the other a drinks and eating bar. By keeping the colour palette minimal and just adding a pop of blue throughout on the ceilings and then the bright red neon the space successfully became cohesive even though it effectively has three different functions.
