A year ago Mireia contacted Masquespacio. Valencian, almost converted in Brazilian and passionate surfer she had the dream to open the first tropical sushi restaurant in her native city. This way Kaikaya was born, a project clearly inspired by Mireia’s lifestyle and that mixes elements from Japan and Brazilian tropicalismo.
Kaikaya, is the result of the history about Japanese that arrived to Brasil, bringing the fusion of traditional and methodic Japan with the tropical and exotic, contemporary Brazil to the center of Valencia.
The design needed to contain a strong splash of color, together with an eclectic style that could mix the 2 concepts of Japan + Brazil without being conventional.
The project contains materials that remind to Japan like wood and raffia, together with elements that bring in the tropicalismo from the samba country with its colorful patterns made of mosaic tiles, parrots and an overwhelming incorporation of plants.
The raffia circles represent the hats used during the rice collection, here merged in an explosive way with the colorful mosaic tiles and tropical plants.
The parrot lamps with a palm as well as all the other decorative lamps were specifically designed for the project.
On the upper floor on the other hand anew we find a combination of the original heritage from the space, fusionend with tropical and Japanese elements.
