YOI restaurant in Stockholm is inspired by street markets in various Asian cities.

YOI Restaurant by Lomar Arkitekter

For a pan-Asian restaurant in Stockholm, Lomar Arkitekter used a bold yellow and green colour combination to mix a street market feel with a polished Scandinavian look.

The designers utilized yellow corrugated steel, wooden walls (with stencilled ‘rules’), exposed ceilings and polished cement floors to convert this former boutique into a restaurant. Bright street scenes photographed by the graphic design team, JVD, add further contrast to the walls.

The furniture, in yellow and pastel green, was custom designed for the space, with overhanging lamps and lighting fixtures above bench tables.

But the best touch is one you can’t see: to give the restaurant some Far-East hustle and bustle, street noises from Asian cities are streamed into the toilets.
