Japanese interior design is one of the most distinctive in style. We showcase a simple but funky design by Japan’s BaNANA OFFICE Inc for a shaved ice or Yelo parlour in Tokyo, Japan.

The client, Yelo at Kaki Gori was after a welcoming and bright interior, and wanted the designers to use red. The creative studio, BaNANA OFFICE Inc chose to mix a range of red furnishings with the warmth of wood to add a funky and attractive interior.

The small shop, based in a popular location in the area of Roppongi, has been given a boost to its presence with the use of red lighting both outside and in. Quirky cafe tables and chairs, along with high tables and chairs provide a casual and sociable environment for customers who want to indulge in this Japanese dessert. The overall look is very retro and yet manages to stay clean with the use of only a few colours and materials.
