In early 2017, Red design was appointed to design a new modern Japanese dining experience. Located at the high-end and popular Taikoo Hui mall, Umi is set to become the highlight of Shanghai in 2018. The interior brief was to create an interior and exterior design aesthetic that spoke Japanese and breathed western influence. A rich combination of classic modern western furniture pieces and Japanese detailing
create a unique dining atmosphere not seen in Shanghai to date.
