Kyoto Wok Café is an urban Asian cafe based in Rostov-on-Don, Russia. The brand experience is minimalism at its finest. It uses a very limited color palette that’s confident, simple, and strong. The simplicity sets a foundation for pops of color as seen in the evergreen colors throughout the interiors. The design team based the design on “contrasting combinations of textures.” The website explains, “The color scheme is a stylized dish palette of traditional Japanese cuisine. Identity and decor of the facade are based on graphic patterns and methods of traditional sign boards in Japanese cities.”
One of Kyoto’s notable areas for the identity design are the carryout piece for coffee and beverages which simplifies the typical clunky ones we usually see.
