Levi: A Hybrid Restaurant Featuring Italian + Japanese Food + Design
Levi is an atmospheric restaurant located in Copenhagen, Denmark, designed by Johannes Torpe. The restaurant features a hybrid of Italian and Japanese culinary traditions that is matched by the aesthetics of the space. Named after artisan Romano Levi for his mastery in grappa art, the restaurant wanted a space that represented the spirit of his universe.
The entryway is met by a luxurious curved Italian-inspired standing bar that was custom designed down to the individual fixtures. The green countertop marble is paired by Torpe-designed Precious Chairs for Moroso. Aside from the matching green upholstery, Kvadrat was used on the ceiling and walls to preserve the acoustics of the space.
The banquettes are entirely custom, allowing for precise proportions between seating areas and proper flow throughout the space. Terrazzo floors and larch wood contribute to the warm ambiance, while custom designed lamps set the mood.
