The design of Kintsugi Bangkok by Jeff Ramsey evokes the style of a sleekly modern Japanese restaurant, combining a pure minimalist aesthetic with rustic elements in the furnishings, clusters of hanging lamps, and strong vertical lines in the semi-transparent screens. In this styling, the traditional heritage of Japanese dining is brought into the modern world without losing its classic form. The preparation kitchen and serving counter are to one side, with seating, while tables and two private rooms provide other seating options.
A gingko leaf is depicted in the restaurant logo, the gingko representing endurance and history, as it is the oldest species of tree in existence. Four trees that were alive during the atomic bomb blast in Hiroshima are still growing today. Chef Ramsey’s mother was born the same year in Hiroshima. In autumn the green leaves of the gingko turn a brilliant yellow, paving streets in Japan with a golden carpet from the fallen leaves. The blue represents the ocean and tranquility.
