Atmosphere borne by ingenious design

The Sticks'n'Sushi restaurant in the Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen is the restaurant and take-away chain’s most Japanese eatery to date judging by the design and layout which were created through a partnership with OEO Studio.

Old Japanese patterns adorn the space towards the kitchen, which is centrally located in the spacious open-plan premises. The room is completely transparent due to all the windows, which offer clear views of both the Pantomime Theatre in the gardens as well as the bustling city life on Bernstorffsgade.

The style is a mixture of Japanese and Nordic, the keywords being simplicity and minimalism. The materials include oak planks, and the ceramic floor tiles feature a fish scale-inspired pattern.

Anne-Marie Buemann from OEO Studio says that the priority was to create an intimate atmosphere with superior acoustics. The ceiling is clad with grey Troldtekt rhomb acoustic panels, which ensure pleasant acoustics and an inviting atmosphere with their soft materiality and graphic pattern. The ceiling is also reminiscent of Japan, and adds further to the overall experience and feeling of openness in the room.

Due to this sense of openness, there are few secluded corners inside, but on the 400-square-metre roof terrace, small Japanese-like pavilions will be erected for those wanting to be shielded a bit more from other diners.
