The popular Jumeirah neighborhood eatery, Origami, a homegrown Dubai restaurant, has opened its doors at The Dubai Mall. Its new design features a complete makeover of the original restaurant and features simple forms in natural materials and organic shapes reflecting the simplicity and minimalism of traditional Japanese culture. Its architecture presents a temple-like structure covered in a dense texture of clay; its gray hue emphasizes the earthy material. The texture of the walls is further accentuated by plays of light and shadow coupled with dim lightening that echoes the ambiance of old underground Japanese sushi bars. Other additions include black matted tiles, draped seating and textured glass partitions that endow the eatery with an authentic experience one where the design evokes feelings of intrigue and mystery in addition to comfort and luxury all wrapped within the gentle ebb and flow of contemporary interiors reminiscent of the Japanese idea of wabi-sabi—of recognizing the beauty in humble simplicity.
