Ryu Kosaka of Aoyama Nomura Design (A.N.D.) has designed Bar S for the exclusive Shiseido Building in Ginza, Tokyo

Located in the heart of the Ginza, Ryu Kosaka – winner of the Best Bar prize in the UK's Restaurant & Bar Design Awards 2014 – has created Bar S with the vision to deliver a new bar that would act as a symbol for the area. The "S" in Bar S brings to mind a number of concepts such as salon, smile, special and share, and has been designed with the idea of having all patrons enjoy its personalised style.

When guests alight from the elevator, they are transported away from the dazzling city lights and welcomed by the flickering glow of candles in the bar's reception area. The bar has been split into two separate areas: a bar counter which anyone could feel comfortable sitting around, and a lounge for larger groups. Above the bar counter, a sky light can be opened, allowing the cool evening breeze in during the warmer months. The lounge area is decorated with distinctive pieces of art and furniture, creating a sophisticated yet comfortable space for guests.
