In the heart of Kiev, in the Ukrainian capital opposite the station is “China ma”, an unusual restaurant designed and built by Yod studio, inspired by the crowded Chinese and Thai streets.
The studio founded by Volodymyr Nepyivoda in 2004 is made up of young and promising architects and designers and applies a modern style to its work, mainly realizing commercial projects such as hotels, restaurants, cafes, and bars.
The Yod studio stands out for its minimalism, unconventional use of iconic materials and images.
The studio operates at 360° designing furniture, lighting and taking care of every detail, from graphics to corporate identity.
The latest creation is the “China ma”, an exclusive restaurant with interiors capable of transporting customers in a lively atmosphere, where you can find one of the best Cantonese kitchens and a very rare selection of tea varieties.
At the entrance of the restaurant, an unusual “media tube” immediately attracts attention, crossing the entire restaurant, segmenting and defining spaces, transmitting messages in Chinese.
Inspired by the crowded oriental streets, the studio has added cobwebs as if they were branched telecommunication wires that reunite with the most important detail, that is, the huge installation of a networked led that shows the face and features of an oriental woman.
The room is on two floors, connected by a glass bridge that reflects the image of the led and where you can better see all the installations.
Given its strategic location, the studio has also created a functional space where you can store your luggage.
It is not only a restaurant where you can enjoy a Chinese gastronomic experience, but also a meeting place.
