The actual “moment” of hanami is not so much searching at the flowers on the tree but watching with a tinge of sadness as they fall from the tree, flutter in the spring breeze on their brief journey to the cold earth under. It is a lovely but melancholy reminder that all daily life have to come to an finish. The short time period in complete bloom and the attractiveness of the flowers are typically likened to the fragility of human lifestyle. Due to the fact of this, it has been said since ancient times that cherry blossoms make folks go crazy.
Obtaining inspired by flowers, I developed this bar. Elegance and coquetry or strength and evanescence of Flowers. The store consists of lounge area and private space. The ceilings of each spaces are covered with deformed flower objects. The objects are manufactured of resin with hologram sheets and cut with a laser.
Visitors can see a variety of colors and reflected lights simply because of the feature of the hologram sheets and they appear to be fluttering flowers. I added half-transparent red shade movie on the resin objects to generate a much more bewitching ambiance in the lounge area. Meanwhile, in the personal karaoke room I had the hologram to reflect the lights naturally in order to create more lively feelings.
In the center of the space I hung the hologram objects from the ceiling and place the light from each inside and outside. The light from the outdoors gets reflected randomly in the area and from inside tasks flower-like expression onto the ceiling and the wall. Esthetics for flowers is reinterpreted in different techniques in the bar. (Ryohei Kanda / Roito)
