The ceiling was inspired by the Lunar and its reflection in the sea. To incorporate the concept, we used the moon texture on the globe lights and rippled steel on the ceiling that resembles the sea surface. We wanted to evoke the beauty of the moon and its reflection in the sea, so we carefully crafted a ceiling design inspired by Lunar.
The combination of these aesthetically-pleasing elements creates a breathtaking atmosphere that is both mesmerizing and calming. While designing the restaurant floor, we chose to use brass and Black/White terrazzo to symbolize the Lunar Day and Lunar Night respectively, giving a unique representation of time in an otherwise timeless space.
We chose to use a combination of Brass and Wood for the restaurant furniture, as these materials typically signify a classic and timeless look. We then opted for blue and yellow for the colors, as a reference for sea and moonlight.
