KOJAWAN: 21st century dining experience in London

Conceived, designed and curated by London-based artist and designer Henry Chebaane, this bar, dining and art space is inspired by the vibrant cultural, artistic and culinary cross-pollination taking place between the capitals of East Asia.

Breaking every possible rule about what Asian dining should look and feel like, turning design story-telling on its head while being steeped in references to popular art and virtual iconography – this destination does not seem “authentic” according to average Western expectations, yet it is filled with a multitude of genuine detail. The interior space experience conveys “real virtuality”: where the imaginary realm of digital culture is made into real and tangible sensationsKJW-Cuisine-2
