When you think of sushi, you think of the colorful rolls we all eagerly put in our mouths, so naturally, those same rolls make the perfect inspiration for a sushi restaurant, right? Mode:lina architekci chose the color scheme based on the food Tokyo Tey, a newly opened sushi spot in Poznań, Poland, would be serving.

The store’s design is relatively minimalist with black and white being the key colors, along with the sushi-inspired colors that pop up in the stripe of triangles that runs through the space, complementing the brand’s visual identity designed by Anna Markowska. Large windows give passersby a view into the shop, as well as the sushi being made.

Triangles are a part of the company’s branding and they show up in the white truss above the counter, the ceiling lights, and the wall lights.

The dynamic counter was designed to draw customers in as they walk by the storefront’s windows. The sculptural counter is outfitted with faceted, backlit triangles that continues the triangular theme of the establishment.
