Yugen design is about “borrowed scenery” - a Japanese concept of incorporating the outer surrounding into interior space through openings. The approach is to provide the guest a space to contemplate, to be withdrawn from the outer world while observing its ever changing through the circular windows.
This untranslatable aesthetic, as the meaning of the name Yugen, is form by the extension of circular windows frame throughout the interior. The frame system becomes the central design element incorporate other forms: partitions, lighting system, liquor shelving, mixing mirror and ceiling system.
