The modern restaurant combines fine cuisine and ceramic art with real-time projections that canvas the interactive restaurant’s walls and dining tables. “When a dish is placed on the table, the scenic world contained within the dish is unleashed, unfolding onto the table and into the surrounding space,” say the designers. “For example, a bird painted on a ceramic dish is released from the dish and can perch on the branch of a tree that has been unleashed from a different dish.”
The sizes and shapes of the projected objects are also affected by the other dishes on the luxury dining table. This creates an environment of constant change, designed to reflect Japan’s changing seasons. Furthermore, the projections are influenced by the diners’ behavior: “if you are still, a tiny bird might alight on your hand; if you move suddenly, it might fly away,” explains TeamLab. The interactive restaurant’s menu and presentation, which changes monthly, includes a 12-course meal with dishes including black wagyu beef and seasonal vegetables.
Arita dinnerware is characterized by its beautiful—almost transparent—white porcelain, as well as its vivid and intricate designs. Using techniques that have been handed down through generations for over 400 years, seasonal trees and flowers depicted on the dinnerware are released out, spreading widely onto the available space. New designs are released every month, based on unique Japanese scenery from across the four seasons of spring, summer, fall, and winter. All guests will be able to enjoy this absolutely extraordinary and unique dining experience.
The dinnerware used at this interactive restaurant originated from the Nigoshide Porcelain from Sakaida Kakiemon XV. A wide range of dishes is decorated with beautiful colors using a variety of traditional artworks, including Arita ware from the Meiji Era, as well as the Riso Porcelain by its 4th generation heir, Shinji Terauchi.
