Señora Tanaka, representative of nakki food, refers to the female figure, sophisticated and faithful representative of her Japanese heritage, pays homage to her father Señor Tanaka, without leaving behind her personality that she appropriates in her own way with a grunge air and avant-garde touch, integrating into the vibe of Masaryk, Polanco, where blend gastronomy and interior architecture. Its interior design, with a look towards the Japanese architectural tradition and an urban air, is developed on a single floor; joining the access from the exterior lobby to the interior through a mirror of water that reflects and frames the contrast between colors and textures. Cherry trees are part of its essential elements that define and unite its architecture.

In this project, the lighting design also played an important role in the design of the spaces, giving the spaces a mystical halo and spatial quality, creating a “zen” atmosphere, also integrating the use of dry trees into the design that stand out for the red color of its leaves and pieces of branches on its walls, without leaving behind the high technology of the Japanese streets, which is represented in its corridor surrounded by folding screens.
