Naniwa | Panbeton® wall cladding for a restaurant
This location in Nantes, France, serves artisanal Japanese cuisine, made with a combination of rigorously selected fresh fish and high quality local ingredients, all prepared with the greatest care.
Like delicate backdrops, the Panbeton® Scaffolded 15mm panels fit beautifully into the décor to create an elegant, modern ambiance in this takeaway restaurant. The clever use of concrete panels helps to expand and brighten the room, so customers feel welcome in this comfortable and attractive space.
With a nod to the work of Japan’s most illustrious architect, Tadao Ando, the restaurant is staged to create a dialogue between concrete, wood and light in their rawest expression. The shopfront space is narrow and angular, given structure by a suspended ceiling that borrows from the conventions of traditional Japanese framework, offering a view that is only interrupted by the soothing central counter.
