Yumi Yumi Mexico City

Yumi-Yumi is a new concept of Japanese cuisine, the client hired David Dana Arquitectura to design a comprehensive project including graphic identity. The design proposal aims to be re-adaptable to multiple sites.

From the architect. Mexico City is developing new and extraordinary urban interventions in order to intervene in existing voids with potential. In this case the project “Morera market under the bridge” located in Palmas-Polanco becomes a good example of this new scene in the city.

Monday Morning Photo(s) Germany

For Today’s Monday Morning Photo(S) we have a project by Hidden Fortress Design Studio the “Seven Swans & The Tiny Cup” bar in Frankfurt, Germany, that has approximately 183 square feet and only 15 seats.

The designer’s description

In the narrowest building of Frankfurt, the first room to be entered from the street level is only 14 feet x 13 feet (4.5 x 3.8 m). In the 183 square feet (17 square meters), we created a bar with 15 places (seven at the bar and six on the opposing wall), and the overall impression of a big spacious room.

Behind the counter, everything necessary to serve demanding cocktail guests is rigged up around the barkeeper. The setup includes two refrigerators, one ice machine, a glass washing machine, two sinks, proper space to store bottles, full and empty, and everything else one needs to mix drinks.
