Restaurant interior design is often an excellent way to metaphorically represent the culinary leanings of the chef, and that is exactly the case when it comes to the Rhoda restaurant in Hong Kong.

Rhoda's restaurant interior, designed by none other than the Joyce Wang Studio, is highlighted by the use of a burned aesthetic on the walls, while the chandelier features distinctly smoky hues. The restaurant's walls and pillars are sheathed in burnt cedar, inspired by traditional Japanese wood-smoking techniques.

All of these smoky interior designs encapsulate chef Nate Green's innovative style of charcoal grilling. Ultimately, this is a great example of interior design that is influenced by more than just visual aesthetic goals, but actually features a deeper meaning that is inspired by the function and central mission of the space.
