El Japonez InterlomasHuixquilucan Edo, Mexico City, 2018
The Japonez Interlomas Restaurant located in the Central Interlomas shopping center, in the state of Mexico, is a Japanese food restaurant with a clear commitment to design. The great height of the main dining room and the use of natural materials such as wood and brass give a unique character to the space.
The lighting design aimed to enhancement the ceiling “tiles”, 90% wood and 10% brass, and at the same time to create direct light towards the dining areas to allow the necessary flexibility when moving or relocating tables. The solutions was to design a special luminaire suspended from the ceiling, made of brass, which provides both indirect and direct light.
