“Inspired by Japanese mixology and American prohibition, Himitsu is a darkly theatrical speak-easy, peppered with the rich colors and textures inspired by the emotion and drama captured in Todd Murphy’s painting King of Birds. Himitsu is the sister bar to popular Atlanta sushi haunt, Umi Sushi.”

Design Research Studio (DRS) have created a raw yet sophisticated aesthetic for the brand new cocktail lounge. DRS playfully offset slick, metallic against rougher, natural materials whilst retaining the pre-existing industrial features and exposed structural details.

An installation of the newly launched Tom Dixon lighting‘s  Melt pendants, are delicately suspended in the central void and create a striking gesture upon arrival. The Melt pendant draws inspiration from molten metal, distorted natural forms and emits a hallucinogenic glow that casts an ethereal luminosity and sets the tone for the rest of the bar.

Himitsu is furnished with a composition of sculptural pieces that were selected to create distinct silhouettes within in the space. Smoked mirror and natural marble table tops sit on industrial Tom Dixon Roll bases to form a tactile landscape of surfaces which explore texture, distortion and the reflection of rough against the smooth.
