A Dream Café of Kyouchii, Interpret Origami Through Layering

Kyouchii is a brand new Japanese-inspired dessert village based in Makassar, one of a big city in Indonesia. It began with a tale about a fox, called Kyouchii, living in Kitsune, a small Japanese village. And to living its dream, Kyouchii went to the city and built a café.

As we can see from the story, Kyouchii is the icon of this café. The whole interior design idea itself is to “Interpret Origami Through Layering”. Departing from Japanese tradition and embracing a modern aesthetic in its design, we were careful not to give minimalist and homey feeling too much, because it is a commercial space.


KYOUCHII_INTERIOR_2We painted a kind of cheerful touch to captivate not only adults, but also kids. It was delivered through pastel colors throughout the café, dominated largely by pink, tosca, blue, yellow and green. In keeping with the logo, almost everything was designed to highlight geometrical shapes. It psychologically gives a resolute and firm sense not only for a woman to visit the café, but a man can also comfortably set his foot on Kyouchii.

As for the tables, we got it from The Toop Table, a sister company of IOOR STUDIO. There are three table designs that were thoughtfully produced. The first features an engraved Kyouchii fox logo in mosaic tiles. The second is a trapezium wood table that contains white pebbles forming the logo, which is surrounded by synthetic grass. The third is a combination of trapezium and parallelogram.



The concept was also interestingly poured into the whole café, including the façade, shapes in the staircase railing, foxy wooden frames and the pastel roofs. It was intentionally created to spark curiosity into the eyes of all the passersby.

Kyouchii is the aftermath of mindful interior design concept that was constructed based on our client’s needs, not leaving behind the thoughtful design, comfort and functional facets.

We hope our design could be accepted along with the fun and cheerful mood that was presented by Kyouchii.
