The Japanese architect Tadao Ando, was chosen to design the Morimoto Restaurant. The Chef Masharu Morimoto, decided to make his New York solo debut in 2006 with the opening of a new restaurant. 

The bi-level restaurant is separated into a 160-person seated dining area and a 40 person lounge in the lower level. Ando achieves a Zen-like serenity throughout the space by using glass privacy walls between tables, rice paper walls, and an organic ceiling that resembles the raked sand of Eastern rock gardens.

The ‘bottle wall’, is composed out of 17,400 half liter plastic bottles, filled with mineral water and LED lighting. The combination of the led’s en the bottles, are producing a shimmery effect in the space. 

An another restaurant of Morimoto in Philadelphia, is designed by Karim Rashid.. More info on Morimoto Restaurant. websites
