Pop Art Light

Shimokita, the Japanese tapas restaurant recently opened at Via Archimede 14, brings a true corner of futuristic Tokyo to Milan.

The new venue of Gruppo Luca Guelfi suggests the trendy neighborhood of the same name in the Japanese capital, with its small, narrow venues: the entrance leads directly to a bar counter in black veined marble and long rows of bottles of sake, gin and whisky. The lower level has wooden tables combined with colorful seating.

In a vortex of colors, amidst manga and robots, tapas and sashimi, the Tits appliques and ceiling lamps by Venini designed by Studio Job are inserted between kaleidoscopic graffiti by Mr. Wany, perfectly in tune with the audacious style of the venue.




The Diamantei chandelier, full of precious details in glass with pendants, stands out at the entrance, giving rise to an ironic touch: intentionally ostentatious luxury that bursts into the pop world of Shimokita.
