The eclectic concept of the place – a cosy drawing room of the European who is deep in Japan – was inspired by the travel of authors across Portugal and their old interest in Japanese culture. Almost imperceptible interlacings of quotes from traditional Portuguese esthetics and the principles of Japanese philosophy connect history, art, nature and modern everyday life. So, for example, ornaments of stone lace from the Monserat palace located in Sintra became a prototype of the stamped wall of the hall. The metal facade of a bar counter repeats the drawing of a typical Portuguese tile and causes associations with raw fish - a basis of Japanese cuisine. And shades of conventional scales – a tribute to one of the symbols of Portugal - a blue sardine.

Simplicity, "dampness", incompleteness and understatement, common to Japanese esthetics, break and animate the form of a drawing room by the wine bar from metal fittings, flower cache-pots from the rusted industrial details, and an unexpected wooden fragment of an ancient Portuguese mill. Pictures of the Portuguese artist Victor Teixseira living on Madeira island became a bright visual accent to the atmosphere. Being scenery for refined Japanese cuisine from one of the best sushi teams in Europe, this interior of implications communicates with the guest more than in two languages.
