A restaurant offering fusion cuisine with Japanese and European influences can also play with these influences in its interior design: In their design for “Enso Sushi und Grill” in Stuttgart, DIA – Dittel Architekten combine dark woods with earthen tones, brass and warm light. On entering the restaurant guests can choose between four different seating options. Those seeking intimacy will make for the area to the right of the entrance. Guests can enjoy their food in privacy here in niches framed by oak, slightly raised by a platform and fitted with high backrest cushions.

The left-hand side of the restaurant is dominated by a long counter and standalone tables. In the rear part of the restaurant, by contrast, you can dine at low tables seated on floor cushions. The architects have combined typical delicate Japanese decoration elements with partitions of light wooden slats and subtle decorations for the counter and niches with steel and brass in a consciously minimalist manner. Wood is the prevailing material in the room and with its attractive feel lends a warm contrast to the clear lines. Finally, in order to achieve pleasant acoustics despite the many smooth surfaces, the architects have introduced sound-absorbing padded walls and a noise-absorbent ceiling – after all, people want to be able to talk easily while eating.

The seating areas at the entrance offers with high back cushions an undisturbed enjoyment of the Asian specialties.
For an open communication the guest room provides a long counter and standalone tables.
The soundproofed seating areas near the wine cellar offers the possibility of retreating.
In the rear part of the restaurant you can dine at low tables while sitting on floor cushions.
For the lighting the architects decided to use Vibia's striking LED pendant lamps "Match".
