Haiku Sushi in Shanghai, China, recently opened in the courtyard of the Shanghai International Finance Center and has combined form and function with their origami-inspired interior design. The establishment, owned by The Haiku Restaurant Group, has created their own minimalist conception for their new eatery based on the ancient Japanese art of paper folding, according to WorldInteriorDesignNetwork.com.

Each area of the restaurant was designed from the ground-up and draws on the accents of origami creations. The restaurant's ceiling dominates the space and uses aluminum and translucent panels to resemble a giant piece of folded paper.

Along with the beautifully conceptualized ceiling, each table and chair is geometrically significant. Patrons may notice how the furniture seems to fit together, with strong sloping edges that bring to mind origami shapes. Lighting also plays a large role in the design, as different effects are displayed off of the tapered ceiling as well as many of the iridescent materials used in the construction.

Asian influences can provide wondrous accents for your interior design. Window treatments such as bamboo shades are eco-friendly and harvested from renewable sources. They could provide a charming aesthetic accent to your interior design.
