Item Details
The space design at Kimika is a reinterpretation of quiet luxury with a restrained approach: calming and transportive, nuanced and humble. A subdued palette with a sophisticated and calming sensibility. Minimal yet luxurious details complement an umami-rich menu. Inspired by the Itameshi concept - Italian-Japanese cuisine - Kimika looks to achieve harmony by marrying a bold palette and the simplicity of ingredients. Capturing the characteristics of the restaurant’s home Nolita, a unique blend of contemporary and grunge, we wanted to introduce a sensual fluidity that sits within its raw concrete surrounds. The furniture scheme consists of iconic Danish designs as well as custom pieces highlighting plush textile and handmade textures. The goal is a space that harbors intimacy and provides a moment of stillness for the urban diners.
