NÔL is a minimal restaurant interior located in Tokyo, Japan, designed by CASE-REAL. Located on the ground level, “NÔL” is a restaurant atelier with a distinct concept. Functioning as an experimental kitchen, NÔL can also be considered as a flexible space freed from the physical restraints of a classical restaurant.
A place where talented chefs can use for compared to the spacious kitchen, this restaurant has only eight table seats. Though it is compact, the goal was to create an atmosphere that suits the extraordinary dishes that will be prepared.
Since the name of this facility comes from the French term “non-usuel (non-usual)” and “noir (black)” the space was designed with black as its key-color, and the task was to create a restaurant with a special feeling which is not fully open to the public considering the stance and characteristics of the space.
