Nomiya: Temporary Restaurant / Pascal and Laurent Grasso

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Nomiya is an artistic project by Laurent Grasso with the collaboration of the architect Pascal Grasso.

This is a temporary, transportable restaurant on the roof of Le Palais de Tokyo museum in Paris. The restaurant takes its name, Nomiya, from a very small restaurant in Japan.

The structure features a dining room for twelve people with a panoramic view over the Seine and the Eiffel tower. The restaurant comprises a glass cabin and a perforated metal screen covering the central cooking area. The 18 metre-long structure was part constructed in the Cherbourg boatyard in northern France and transported to Paris in two parts, where it was assembled on the roof of Le Palais de Tokyo. Coloured LED lighting is placed between the metal skin and the glass core. White Corian furniture populates the dining room.
