Tokyo Sushi, Barcelona
Terril with Matte 58 finish
As Barcelona’s oldest Japanese restaurant, with a 36-year history, Tokyo Sushi has a proud heritage to protect. When it sought to update its interior design, the decision was made to combine traditional Japanese style with a modern vanguard.
KOBFUJI Architects specified Formica Group’s Terril laminate surfacing with Matte 58 finish to clad the 10m-long wall behind the sushi bar. Terril was used to create an interpretation of the classic kimono stripe pattern from the Edo era – capturing the Japanese heritage integral to the restaurant’s identity.
Formica® laminate was also used previously by KOBFUJI Architects in the design of Futami, another Japanese restaurant in Barcelona.
Ideal for the hospitality environment, Formica® laminate offers on-trend designs and practical features such as durability, hygienic properties and ease of maintenance.
