Amai Hana (in Japanese "sweet flower") is the cafe of Japanese desserts in Kiev, Ukraine. The main project task is not to convey a direct quotation of Japanese culture but to show this theme in a contemporary light as well as to create the space where you can get aesthetic and gastronomic pleasure. Warm nude, terracotta tones and a honey wood are used in the palette. The installation of fine wooden sticks on the ceiling reminds us of Japanese bamboo groves. It creates an easy pleasant atmosphere for enjoying exotic Japanese sweets.


Working on the interior you become  a stage director of a new space, you set the tone and mood, you feel its taste, you begin to see the frames of possible events in this interior, the lifestyle of its visitors.


Сafe area is 52 sq m


In this project the ceiling is made of white painted wooden sticks. We used 4290 sticks with a diameter of 4 cm and a height of 15cm to 35cm. They are arranged in a chaotic order and symbolize the chaotic and rhythm of the bamboo forest.


What about walls we used the same wooden sticks as on the ceiling and collected a cover for the upper portions of the wall from the sticks. We used veneered walnut plates on the lower portion of the walls.


The glossy material is the polymer flooring. It`s colored and polished.


From the left side of main cafe space there are the white banquette for the whole length of the wall, the side tables by BD Barcelona and the transparent plastic Snow chairs by Pedrali. The side tables are made from an ultra-clear glass and a pyrex tube mirrored base, having no joinings.


From the right side there are the Cala armchairs by Kettal which are made of aluminium, fabrics, laminate fabrics, Bela ropes.


The dessert counter is covered with the same material as the floor.


For artificial lighting we use the Pom Pom suspension lamp by Calligaris, the Funnel wall lights by Vibia and hidden LED lighting. This is quite enough to illuminate the whole space, because of completely glass facade a lot of natural light comes into the room.


Architects: Diana Zibrova, Zakhar Zibrov
