KISUMÉ BRAND IDENTITY

An intoxicating Japanese dining experience; Kisumé is unconventional, slightly twisted and artfully executed, immersing guests in an intriguing view of Japanese traditions. Fusing the client’s obsession with beauty and sensuality with Wood Marsh Architects’ brutally sophisticated interior, the resulting brand identity projects a provocatively warped view. 

Our brief was to break the conventions of a typical Japanese dining experience and define a new and unexpected territory for client, The Lucas Group. A holistic brand identity tempered the minimal space with movement and colour, whilst ensuring the guest experience was at the heart of all that was created. Curated artworks from renowned Japanese photographer Nobuyoshi Araki, add intrigue and dimension to the space creating luxuriant Flinders Lane dining experience unlike no other.
