Mei Ume – A Modern Asian Restaurant In London by AB CONCEPT

This luxury Asian restaurant was designed by the Hong Kong-based design firm AB Concept at the Four Seasons Hotel on London’s Ten Trinity Square. This Asian restaurant located in the 1922 headquarters of the Port of London Authority, features a balance of Eastern and Western design styles, though its name is firmly Eastern, deriving from the Chinese and Japanese words for plum blossom.

At the entrance between two columns, plum blossoms grow up a panel of glass suspended from two metal screens of portholes seen throughout the restaurant interior design. This Asian restaurant‘s color scheme is red which symbolizes luck in Chinese culture. That repeats as a bold accent in the main dining room and in a crimson lacquer frame that surrounds a three-layer gilded triptych telling the story of a feast in a garden.
