Restauranteur Kent Hahne launched GinYuu, a pan-Asian restaurant in Stuttgart that comes with a lounge concept and focus on cocktails. Employing Ippolito Fleitz Group to complete the look, the restaurant invites visitors to drop the shopping mall location at the door and dive into the simply designed surroundings meant to create a relaxed environment through different textures, surfaces, and materials.
Canopies of lamps set the tone while creating different zones within the interior. Wood shows up throughout the restaurant as a main material, like in the panels that hang above the counter made out of driftwood. Oak is used on the floors and on the fronts of the counter.
Bleached shutters hang from the ceiling adding visual interest to what could have been an empty space.
On the pillars, white tile features illustrations from Stuttgart-based illustrator Claudia Wagner.
The round tables house pieces of driftwood under glass.
