What if an architect could be as experimental as a chef?
The power of Chef Nobu’s experimental cuisine became a spark for ideas.
From his early years growing up in the Japanese countryside to his first work as a chef in South America, the chef’s experiences inspired a design that uses materials as a geographic exploration of history and craft.
Innovative materials mark a new chapter for the Nobu brand.
Cast terrazzo embedded with bamboo, light fixtures made of abalone shells and sea urchins, and a curved wall of abaca fiber echo the natural materials and craft of Japan.
