Gold Winner | AW Café. Winter | YUIMOM Group

The design is based on the story of a boy who went out on a winter night and saw an aurora in the sky. So he delightedly put a little piece of the aurora in a little box and took it home with him. Later that night, he let the aurora light the ceiling of his living room, and told everyone that he has his own aurora.

It features an open kitchen to allow a broad view of the space, and art installations of changing lighting effects to add a sense of warmth to the atmosphere. Different from general food service, the open kitchen allows consumers to see the chef’s cooking process, and the restaurant space without a sense of distance can convey more people-to-people interaction during meals.

Those two auroras in nebulous shapes and various colours float subtly in the ceiling, yielding a surreal ambiance that brings a glimmer of joy to the ordinary life.
