About the restaurant
Leaves in the Wind Kenneth Cobonpue designs his first full-scale restaurant space for Akira: The Art of Sushi and Teppanyaki Leaves dancing in the wind -- this was a moment from a trip to Japan that was crystallized in renowned furniture designer Kenneth Cobonpue s mind when he was approached to design Akira at the Alphaland City Club in Makati City.Akira: The Art of Sushi and Teppanyaki a brand under the SumoSam Restaurant Concepts group is a forerunner among the new wave of teppanyaki restaurants in the metro turning the personal dining experience into an art form. Akira is set against the backdrop of postmodern classic design a marriage of traditional and contemporary Japanese elements. However Akira in Alphland takes this concept one step further and asked no less than Cobonpue to conceptualize and execute his designs.Cobonpue was approached by SumoSam group co-founder Marvin Agustin a friend and long-time design client and Akira Alphaland business partner (and Cobonpue s fellow Cebuano) Gilbert Go & President of Golden PotBelly Corporation They were willing to try new things and were open to many ideas not associated with the usual decor found in Japanese restaurants -- so I took up the challenge -Cobonpue narrates.Cobonpue s concept for Akira features an abstract forest with a canopy of blown leaves suspended in space and frozen in time as its defining feature.The design mimics the feel of a forest -- one is surrounded by trees with branches that pierce the sky and leaves that billow in the wind explains Cobonpue. This is akin to discovering a magical and secret place known only to you.Cobonpue used polished raw concrete floor to represent the earth and natural brown wood for the trees. The leaves made of silk are individually hand-painted in various hues of warm reds oranges and subtle hints of plums. They are strung together with nylon wire to adorn the high ceiling of the resto. And then of course there are the much sought-after Cobonpue chairs foremost of which is a variation of the already iconic Yoda chairs. The chairs couches and table are made of raw rattan poles and maple wood in soft natural shades of sand modified from an earlier Cobonpue design to fit the restaurant interiors. The warm but hard materials are complimented by the soft cushions of the furniture in muted tones of taupe.A MAGICAL WORLD Executing the design was not without its challenges Cobonpue reveals.Designing restaurants are always challenging because you have to balance the design intent with the practicalities of running a business he states. In a restaurant like Akira we have to maximize the use of the floor area for seating without making it look crowded. The use of natural woods raw concrete and soft earthy tones calm the senses so that even at full capacity the restaurant still looks spacious.Cobonpue s team also ran into a roadblock when the building owners had to install a new airconditioning system that dropped the ceiling height dramatically.We had to make last hour adjustments to the arrangement of the tree branches and leaves Cobonpue says.Cobonpue believes his design for Akira fulfills what he deems are the tenets of good design: form and function. I think the interiors translate my belief that the encounter of beauty produces the element of peace. I hope people feel that they are stepping into a magical world even for a fleeting moment in time. I want their hearts to flutter with the experience
