Kinoya Restaurant is located in the heart of Montreal and looks to izakaya, traditional Japanese taverns for its design inspiration. Marrying vivid aesthetics with practical design details, this eatery stuns visitors, leaving them with a sensory experience that is almost more memorable than their meal.

This delicious sushi restaurant is clad in a rich wood materials that are layered throughout its interior. The restaurant's geometric wall and ceiling elements are visually striking and conceptual, revealing hidden shapes at every angle.

Montreal's Kinoya Restaurant is the work of designer Jean de Lessard who wanted to create a sense of 'organized chaos'within the space. His design channels the look of a slithering snake creature but has been conceived using irregular forms and sharp geometries instead of curved and smooth surfaces.
