Kura is a Japanese bar and brewery, specializing in sake. The establishment opened in New York City's Brooklyn neighborhood and the interior vibe of the business has been arranged by locally based studio Carpenter + Mason, while the branding was left to LMNOP Creative.
When deciding on the mood of the Japanese bar, Carpenter + Mason embraced industrialism. This movement is heavily prominent in Brooklyn, therefore the business' brick-and-mortar presence seamlessly ties into the existing vibe of its location. However, to set Kura apart in the area and to pay homage to the Japanese bar's product, Carpenter + Mason also infuses the interior with subtle but strong elements that hint toward Eastern cultures.
