The first Mongo sushi spot in Kolonaki, a self-service space for quick Asian snacks which also sales Asian products, was designed with clear references to its apparent origin. The abstract intention in the qualitative characteristics of a typical space of Japanese architecture was the central influence during the design process. The strict architectural engravings, the elements of folding surfaces –influenced by origami- and the uniform morphological and stylistic approach, create a place where the Asian aesthetic reformulates with clear design intent to create an environment where gentleness and clarity dominate. The area was formed based on the operational requirements. The central reserve display and service point are the core of the design. Situated there, is the fresh sushi refrigerator, the bar service and surrounding the other products sold are presented. Thus creating a circular route enabling an overall view of the store. The retail products are placed linearly on the left side of the store, in wooden cubed shape showcases. The other rooms are used for catering, with the capability of creating a private space, thanks to mobile wooden panels. The materials used follow the principles of Japanese architecture and highlight the elements of the corporate identity. Wood surfaces and elements were used for the furniture, the wall finishings, the floors, the lighting and the equipment. The predominant white color on the walls, the lighting fixtures and furnishings advocates the sense of harmony and serves as an ideal platform for showcasing products, graphic design and decorative elements of the space and corporate identity. Origami, was the reference for the bespoke metal structures of the folding radiator bases and the monastery style table.
