Kokoro kitzen The sakura effect Kokoro comes from the hearth, we wanted to change the idea of enjoying the japanese kitchen in Mexico. A mix of flavours from Osaka to Mazatlán, under a romantic scenery and a very fun brand identity. Date: 2013 Services: Branding, Illustration, Architecture What better than a romantic image of a meal that makes you fall in love? The basic idea of the project was to explore the ‘look and feel’ of traditional geisha and contrast it with the Japanese obsession for comic characters. We created the interior design reinterpreting two icons of Japanese culture: Koi fish and sakura.
