Designed by: AlvinT StudioPhotography by Martin Westlake From the architect: This is a whimsical interpretation of a modern Japanese street food bar. In the hands of AlvinT Studio, Gyoza bar is a made out of a fusion of Japanese comic-ky graphics with eye-popping colours. Many of the furniture were custom designed with a young and cheerful mood in mind. One of the highlights were the suspended lounge chair that gives a different experience eating in a restaurant. Screaming for attention is the main dining area which is in a form of a seating booth complimented with a gigantic Gyoza-shaped canopy woven with synthetic rattan. There are many symbolic references to Japanese culture, such as the coin-shaped partition in the private rooms, and custom prints wallpaper on the main wall. Overall the space echoes an idiosyncratic character that is contemporary Japanese fused with Indonesian touches.
