Topos Design Clan give restaurant ocean-inspired facelift

by Andrew Manns | 27 Mar 2019

Interior specialists Topos Design Clan have completed an ocean-inspired rehaul of Shunfenglou Restaurant in Wenzhou, China.

Citing Claude Debussy's orchestral composition La Mer as an influence, the designers created the eatery's ship cabin-like decor, which features aquatic motifs, such as bronze-coloured fish decals, porthole-shaped mirrors, and royal blue furniture.

Other notable elements of 1,500 sq m space include a ribbed vestibule, a streamlined bar, and a metal grid ceiling that brings to mind the transverse frame of an ocean liner.

Lighting design was provided by Haibei Zhang, and construction was carried out by Yuangheng Decoration.

Speaking on the project, Topos Design explained that they conceived the restaurant's flowing and organic interiors in order to build an "impressionist symphony of the blue sea".
