BLUFISH-APM RESTAURANT Located on the basement level of the APM Shopping Mall in Wangfujing. Our restaurant created an underwater world full of fantasy and mobility with white as basic tone and a blue and pink colored metal mesh extending down from the top of the ceiling.
The sense of continuity of two dining areas has been enhanced with the natural curved surface shape of the space, making the maximum use of layer height effectively. It extended the space as well, creating four units like undersea cave as more independent dining location.
To echo the theme of the restaurant and express the warm colors of the scene, after several rounds of deliberations and attempts, we chose six kinds of hand-drawn sketches that looks fairy tales-like, easy and warm to represent the underwater coral and aquatic plants and fish groups.
And use laser to cut the metal mesh to make these patterns, then attached them to the white curved surface model. In order to create a unique underwater image: gorgeous, translucent, vague, unstable visual effects.
It is expected that people will feel cozy and relaxed indoors, as if there is fresh air of the Mediterranean Sea in Southern France blowing.
