Dashi Diner
2022

An Asian-inspired diner in Berlin’s Mitte district, founded by Vietnamese-German Thu Thuy Pham and Thao Westphal. For the design, inspiration was drawn from Japanese kissatens as well as the Hong Kong cafĂ© culture. The walls feature ash wood paneling with custom light fixtures, interspersed with a Swedish lamp from 1950s and classic restaurant dinner ware – mixing time periods and geographical places true to the nature of the varied origins of the place.
