• IO Italian Omakase

    A multisensory experience

The project

In the heart of Hong Kong nightlife, IO Italian Omakase has just opened its doors, the second restaurant of the city designed by Pininfarina Architecture and a new chapter of the collaboration between Pininfarina and the Italian Club, after the opening of Seafood Wine Bar in nearby Soho.

The way

For this new venue, which celebrates the culinary fusion between the Japanese and Italian tradition, Pininfarina has studied an intimate and refined design with a soft atmosphere, essential lines and unexpected details: a multisensory experience in which the interior design becomes unique with the culinary experience of high level. When entering IO Italian Omakase, you leave the ferment of the road behind to get into a suspended dimension. A feeling underlined by the wise play of lights and shadows, the palette dominated by blue with silver and coral accents, a white ink wallpaper and, above all, the composition of the false ceiling: small iridescent and reflective shapes, that seem to accompany the guest from one room to another and that  remind the silverfish shoals of the Mediterranean.



The idea

This place is an invitation to forget time and be surprised: the 10 seats are placed along the counter where you can admire the chefs preparing dishes inspired by the Japanese philosophy of Omakase, which translated means “I leave it to you”. To complement, the proven VIP Room Club 88, for up to five people, offers the experience of a traditional Japanese whisky bar in a contemporary and highly evocative setting.
