Grand Achatz

Asterismos is a sensory-based, unconventional fine dining restaurant, founded in partnership with chef Grant Achatz. The goal is to reintroduce the tasting experience through a sense of wonder and adventure - through an immersive paradigm-shifting journey enhanced with multimedia stimulation so curious guests can relish and explore the scintillations of an extraordinary fine dining experience.

In the courtyard, guests would see menu ingredients growing along the pathway. Blossoms made from metal would display holograms of ingredients while matching scents are diffused. This fusion of sight and smell begins the guests on their immersive journey through Asterismos.

The main dining area would allow guests to see the mysterious journey of molecular cuisine. The space was designed around the concept of “transformation” - the material changing surface by surface, accompanied by the displayed projection.

Projection

The main dining area has the fabric applied on the wall surface to bring a cozy and friendly feeling. But also the surfaces material created a nice background when later on the video and graphics projected on the way

Grounded distills the main characteristics of local culture, and relinks people to their roots with tiles made from their homeland's soil.

People have strong emotional and cultural connection to the earth; our identities connect to the local landscapes. Therefore, Grounded. tiles wants to maintain the original material's properties as great capacity with heat and humidity, but also develop the natural material with bio-degradebale PVA to introduce this non-toxic, environmental friendly and sustainable material. At the mean time, the tiles' form is introduced with inspiration from specific landscapes where the natural earth colors originate. Soft landscapes forms evoke a primal yearning for that natural and cultural connection.
