Kyouchii is a brand new Japanese-inspired dessert café located in Makassar, Indonesia, with interiors designed by IOOR STUDIO

It began with a tale about a fox called Kyouchii, who lived in Kitsune, a small Japanese village. Kyouchii went to the city and built a café, and this little fox is now the inspiration for a real dessert café which has been designed by Jakarta-based interiors consultancy IOOR STUDIO.

Departing from Japanese tradition and embracing a modern aesthetic in its design, the firm wanted to give a cheerful touch to the spaces, in a bid to captivate not only children, but adults, too. This was achieved by utilising pastel colours throughout the café, dominated largely by pink, tosca (turquoise), blue, yellow and green.

In keeping with the café’s fox logo, almost everything was designed to highlight geometrical shapes. The concept was poured into the entire design, including the façade, shapes in the staircase railing, foxy wooden frames and the pastel roofs. It was intentionally planned to spark curiosity into the eyes of all passersby.

The tables were sourced from The Toop Table, a sister company of IOOR STUDIO, with all three table designs custom-made for the project. The first features an engraved Kyouchii fox logo in mosaic tiles. The second is a trapezium wood table that contains white pebbles forming the logo, which is surrounded by synthetic grass. Finally, the third is a combination of trapezium and parallelogram.
