Koichi Takada Architects heros Screenwood in Ippudo restaurant design

With a design clearly inspired by traditional ramen noodles, Koichi Takada Architects placed a Screenwood installation at the centre of their design, to create the rippling ceiling in Sydney’s Ippudo restaurant.


August 10th, 2015

While the effect is dramatic, the installation was made simple with the use of prefabricated modules, only slightly modified to allow for malleability. Expertly installed by Bonar Interiors, Screenwood was supplied prefinished, assembled and cut to length in Western Red Cedar with a teak coating.

The impact of the design is enhanced by the spaces between the bays of panels, drawing lines across the waving timber slats and intensified by the lighting nestled in between. Natural timber brings warmth to the space and the acoustic properties of Screenwood contribute to a welcoming environment.

Screenwood is made in Australia and available in a range of PEFC certified timber species, colours and profiles.
