Japanese Architect Turns Old Ethernet Cables into Stylish Restaurant Decor
Located in the Tokyo suburb of Kichijoji, Tetchan, is a yakitori (grilled, skewered chicken) shop that recently underwent a radical transformation. The space created by architect Kengo Kuma, is covered in recycled LAN cables giving the restaurant a distinctive shaggy, textured appearance. The walls, the lights, the tables and the seats, are completely covered in recycled computer cables. Kuma says, "As the result, some amazing interior emerged, where form becomes invisible and only materiality and various colors appear as if floating in the air."
