THE DESIGN CHASER

Sticks 'N' Sushi London by Norm Architects

10.23.2018

Located on King’s Road in the heart of chic and high-end Chelsea, London's latest Sticks 'N' Sushi restaurant has been designed by Norm Architects. Richly textured, with an emphasis on natural materials, the interior fuses Scandinavian and Japanese aesthetics for an overall sense of contemporary luxury. 


Spanning three floors, materials have been chosen to set a specific mood, with the idea that guests experience increasing light as they walk vertically through the restaurant. The lower ground floor and private dining area is kept in dark nuances and materials, with a feature grid ceiling in oak to invite in nature as a sculptural element, while at the same time softening the space. Intimate and secluded, the lower ground floor is an atmospheric hideaway for parties to absorb the timeless elegance. 


A welcoming space, the ground floor is the heart of the restaurant with industrial elements including a bar in blackened steel. It oozes elegance with subtle contrasts in the quality custom woodwork, Danish design classics and natural stone table tops. The beautiful sculptural leather sofas, perfect for visitors enjoying a cocktail or waiting for a table, are placed by the windows to encourage interaction with the street life of Chelsea. 


The first floor is a bright and sophisticated space with warm oak tabletops and chairs and partition panel walls. Together with an open plan layout, it's a combination that invites intimate seating without loosing the feeling of being in a lovely bustling environment. Light, transparent textiles divide the space and make up translucent, light-bearing elements when they’re lit up at night. The lantern-like, white lamps create an intimate space around the large marble table in the semi-private dining room. Carl Hansen chairs accompany the bespoke tables throughout the restaurant as a reference to the timeless Danish design heritage, quality woodwork and craftsmanship. The custom-made banquette seating embodies that soft feel, inviting guests to engage in the intimate settings.


Such incredible attention to detail, I also love the ceramics that feature throughout the restaurant, including the beautiful bathrooms.
