The new visual and architectural concept of the renowned Sushiko restaurant chain was created by two young Italian-Iranian architects: Pedram Kalhori and Anahita Asgarpour. “Back to the Origins” is a project that pays tribute to Sushiko’s Japanese roots by redesigning its spaces and details to include a mix of iconic elements with a modern twist.
As soon as you step foot in one of these restaurants, you can feel its warm, cosy, and minimalist atmosphere created by the wood-clad walls and the sequence of golden elements that hint at traditional Japanese architecture. The dining room is characterised by a rustic cement-effect wall juxtaposed with a smooth, bright one.
