Los Angeles' new Tsujita Restaurant features a fantastic ceiling made from 25,000 chopsticks carefully arranged to look like a pixellated sky. Designed by Japanese Architect Takeshi Sano, the Cumulus clouds’ formations were inspired by views of the sky from the Izumo Shrine - the biggest shrine in Shimane prefecture, Japan.
Architect Takeshi Sano sought to create a beautiful and mysterious atmosphere influenced by traditional Japanese design. To do this he integrated an incredible ceiling art piece with the restaurant’s interior. By calculating the focal length between the eye line and the wooden sticks and creating different distances between them, the architect was able to design a mysterious cloud-like illusion above the clientele’s heads.
Tsujita specializes in Ramen, but it also offers the tastiest Japanese delicacies ranging from large variety of appetizers and organic salads to the best sake from Japan. With renowned restaurants located around Tokyo, China, Thailand and now LA, Tsujita providing its customers with fantastic original Japanese food and a heavenly interior space. Tsujita LA Artisan Noodle is located at 2057 Sawtelle Blvd in Los Angeles.
