Design that works


Status: Realised
Area: 250m2
Year: 2017-2018
Location: Athens, Greece

Part of ENA working campus, Tokykioski is the cafeteria inside the Asia building that is inspired by the architectural landscape of Tokyo, the principles of minimalism and the unique co-existence of modern and tradition that characterises today the Japanese living. The layout and design of the cafeteria is industrial and minimalistic emphasizing symmetry by utilising objects that were carefully designed and custom-built with repetitive forms and clean lines. Objects like metal chairs and tables, electronic games and screens are incrorporated in the design in  ways that play with the industrial and modern feel of the space.

Thoroughly selected handmade fabric latterns, traditional wooden hand-painted Japanese dolls are blended with high technology materials including synthetic fabrics while neutral and clean colour palette colours are combined with metal and neon lights. As a result Tokykioski promotes a sense of balance with the old and the new co-existing harmoniously together and a sense of openess . Experiencing Japan in the heart of Athens, is in line with KN Group’s vision of making ENA a unique, innovative and culturally diverse campus.
