Estudio Montevideo has completed a new sushi bar in Córdoba, Argentina. Named Tokin Sushi Bar, the new sushi bar invite visitors to join an experience where a small portion of Tokio is combined, merged with the cocktails and Córdoba city's nightlife.
When guests enter to the place, a great Carrara-marble counter welcomes guests, where sushi and drinks are prepared, with a big bottle rack in the background.
In this space, Carrara bar tables and stools were thought to gather people who enjoy oriental food, but also want to have a drink and share a relaxing and spontaneous time with friends. In the upper part, an intervention with hundreds of unique pieces of pottery overflies the room, a work of art closely tied to the so-popular paper figures in Japan's culture.
The main room is inspired by a Japanese tatami, with modular, wooden walls and ceilings, and a fabric simulating paper walls. It was thought in terms of its experience inside of it, where generally diners sit on the floor, and a similar situation was recreated. Playing with different levels, a standard table's height can be achieved, as well as the user fitting with their legs under the table as a kind of big drawer.
This also makes tables not having a set amount of cutlery; it depends on who are using them and the degree of formality or informality of the meal.
The recreation of the atmosphere is finished with the exclusively-designed ceramic tableware, candles and music, which makes Tokin a place to enjoy a good time any day of the week, relaxing, clean, and friendly.
