Ripples of light spreading over the ages …
This is a scenic rotating restaurant located on the top floor of a hotel. The aimed was for a design and implementation that would take full advantage of its unique donut-shaped floor that continually rotates 360°, creating ripples of light from this restaurant that spread out over the old capital. It produces a special elevated feeling of being in the center, with infinite expectations extending to the depths of the space and rings of light providing soft illumination for a sophisticated sensation. The ripples of light are also impressive when viewed from outside, and have become a new landmark in the night scape of Kyoto. Collaboration with the hand-printed paper screen artisan Akihiko Toto has resulted in the production of a hand-printed paper screen covering a total length of 35m depicting the theme of the four seasons.
