INTERIOR STYLING

OVER ALL

EATERY / Hinode Tokyo, 2010

OVER ALL is a café built in Tokyo's Tabloid Building, a former printing factory converted into a mixed-use facility for work and play. Since the café is situated at one end of the buildings entrance hall, Jamo was asked to design it to be the face of the building, a place where creators gather, share a bite and make connections. Since the building's support structure was in good condition, Jamo experimented with renovating the interior with a "factory" concept. This became a way to bring to life the unique strength that buildings only get through many years of actual use as well as to bring life to an atmosphere that would engender fresh ideas and creativity. The support structure, which had become stained with oil and ink, was altered as little as possible, and the dado, which tends to enter the field of vision while dining, was cleaned up with blue paint. In selecting materials, only those associated with factories were used (e.g., aluminum and iron, clean pieces of old wood, blackboards). Old and new desk lamps used at factories around the world were affixed around the walls. Walls above seating areas with sofas were decorated with tabloid newsprint.

タブロイド紙の印刷工場をコンバージョンした、仕事と遊びを創造する複合施設TABLOID(タブロイド)ビル1Fに併設するカフェ。メインエントランスホールの延長に位置することから、クリエーターが集い、食を介して、人と人とがつながる場とする "施設の顔となるカフェ"が条件となった。躯体の状態が良かったことから、長い年月を実際に機能していた建物だけがもつ独特な力強さや、創造性を換気させる空気感を生かすことを考え、「工場」というコンセプトを元にリノベーションを試みた。油やインクが染みついた躯体はできる限りそのまま利用し、食事中、視界に入りやすい腰壁部分は新しくブルーに塗り清潔感を出す。アルミニウムや鉄、無垢の古材、黒板など、工場を連想させる素材のみを使い、世界中の工場で使っていたという設定で世界各国、新旧のデスクランプを多数壁に取り付けた。ソファ席上部の壁にはタブロイド紙を並べデコレーションとした。
