Moriyuki Ochiai Architects have designed the interior for the HANA restaurant/bar and event space. HANA is Japanese for “flower” and the architects were challenged to develop a concept that evoked the floral imagery of the name. The Aluminum Flower Garden features a creased aluminum sheet ceiling that covers visitors with metallic flower petals.

From a single sheet of paper, which can be folded into a variety of shapes, emerged the art of Origami. From a single bolt of fabric was born one of Japan’s most iconic garments: the Kimono. From a single piece of cloth, which can be used to wrap and carry all sorts of objects, came the Furoshiki. Taking inspiration from this cultural background, we used a single finite material–aluminum–as a simple planar surface from which we created an engaging three-dimensional space that fulfills various functions and requirements at once.

A person’s location and angle of vision, as well as the reflection of images and lights from the mirrors, continuously redefine the appearance of the space so visitors can experience a transient and diverse atmosphere. Click through to see images of the Aluminum Flower Garden:
