Sosushi in Turin
Well designed sushi bars, and stores in general are pretty rare in my neck of the woods. I only know of one sushi bar here that has a more modern look, all the other ones seem to be aiming for the traditional looking but westernized design. Of course that’s not necessarily a bad thing, but I love me some good modern design.
This is one of the Italian based Sosushi sushi bars. Sosushi has around 20 or so bars spread all over Italy and they all have very cool modern designs (I might feature some of the other ones in the future). This one in particular can be found in Turin (Torino), it’s a new project (2009) made possible by the also Italian based architectural office UAU.
Magenta isn’t really my favorite color but it does go very well with white and the plexwood they’re using. We’re painting the living room at the moment and going for white, purple and oak parquet floors, but it will not look anything like this :P
Of course with this design you’d expect the sushi to be quite expensive, seeing as there’s only about 10 seats available, and yes, that is the case. It’s not extremely expensive, but more than I usually pay, see for yourself in the menu below.
What do the sushi bars in your neck of the woods look like?
