Although it is not often that people look up when eating at a restaurant, the Tsujita LA ceiling installation shows adding another dimension to a dining space could prove fruitful. As though taking a cue from the Harry Potter dining hall, in which the ceiling magically shifts and changes, this ceiling also has a touch of mystique to it.

Designed by Takeshi Sano, the Tsujita LA ceiling installation more resembles the pinscreen Lulu Guinness created in London. Made using a whopping 25,000 wooden sticks, this structure was created with the illusion of wispy clouds in mind, which was inspired by the beautiful and mysterious skies at the IZUMO shrine, one of the most important shrines in Shimane, Japan.
