Birds fly from your plate and the walls change before your eyes at multi-sensory Tokyo restaurant

Art and lighting collective teamLab have designed a multi-sensory interactive experience for diners at one of Tokyo's most exclusive new beef restaurants.

Sagaya, located in Ginza district, welcomes just eight customers per day to try its 12-course meals and “indulge themselves in a multi-sensory experience of taste, smell, and the scenic beauty of Japan.”

The immersive space combines with ceramic art and real-time projections onto the tables and walls of the space, that shift to reflect the changing seasons of Japan.

When a plate is placed on the table, the scenic world contained within the dish is unleashed in the form of an intricate light display, unfolding onto the table and into the surrounding space.

A bird painted on a ceramic dish is seemingly released and flies to perch on the branch of a tree that has been unleashed from a different dish.

“The sizes, shapes and interactions of the objects released into the space are affected by the world’s unleashed by other dishes on the table, creating a world of constant change,” said teamLab in a statement.

“These unleashed worlds are also affected by the behaviour of the diners. If you are still, a tiny bird might alight on your hand; if you move suddenly, it might fly away.”

The restaurant’s menu and light presentations change every month, and reservations must be made long in advance to secure a place at the restaurant.

teamLab are known for their imaginative and innovative digital installations. Previously they have turned 69 drawings at the National Museum of Singapore into a single giant animated interactive illustration, and partnered with Silicon Valley gallery Pace Art + Technology to create a 20,000sq ft (1,850sq m) “digital playground for all ages”.
