Diaoye Niunan in Beijing Lets You Sit on Floating Tables and Chairs

Diaoye Niunan is a modern restaurant in Beijing that boasts an ultra-chic interior. Tables have been isolated from others with thin screens in between to provide privacy. The tables and chairs have a unique design and look as though both are floating over the ground. Rather than individual chairs, Diaoye Niunan opted for a more communal style of eating, with wrap-around benches surrounding each table and round cushions for comfort.

As diners walk through the restaurant, fog is used to fill the air. A thin, but noticeable layer of fog conveys a sense of relaxation and calmness within the contemporary interior. The overall aesthetic of the restaurant relies on minimalism, with interesting design and experiential elements used to complement meals.
