Sustainable design has become a top priority for architects in recent years but Kengo Kuma's Tetchan restaurant project takes this notion to new heights. The eatery is located in the heart of Tokyo suburb Kichijoji and features an interior that looks as if it is decaying.

Resembling heaps of yarn and layered rust residue, this restaurant's interior is eye-catching and experiential. Its fixtures and furnishings are accented with discarded and found materials including old internet cables and electrical cords.

Specializing in a yakitori menu, Tetchan is not only a hot spot for a delicious meal but also boasts restaurant decor that is immersive and memorable. Its visitors will be given an experience they won't soon forget and are sure to grab some Instagram-worthy shots while at the venue.
