IPPIN Ramen & Bowl is one of the 100+ shopping, entertainment and dining outlets to join Tauranga’s newest shopping center, The Crossing. Australian design firm Design Poets were enlisted to help create a functional yet attractive space, with Harrows also communicating directly with the end client.
The first order of business inside a food court is to maximise the space. Ramen & Bowl had a small footprint, which meant the furniture plays a huge part in its functionality. The Astro Stool and Da Vinci Chair both create different zones, offering either interaction or isolation, targeting a wider range of customers. Furniture pieces embraced minimalism and subtle elegance, paying respect to Japanese design.
