Acclaimed Japanese art dealer NANZUKA recently launched a new space in Tokyo called 3110NZ by LDH Kitchen. The establishment is an art gallery during the day and a sushi restaurant at night. NANZUKA teamed up with Sushi Saito, lauded as “the world’s best sushi restaurants” by critics and chefs with a longstanding tenure as a Michelin 3-star restaurant for the past 10 years. Sushi Saito, which was also located in the Japanese capital, closed its doors in November 2019.
Designed by Daniel Arsham’s co-founded architecture firm, Snarkitecture, the interiors of the establishment feature cavernous walls to hang paintings, glowing lights lining the ceiling and art displays alongside large cobble stone flooring. A sprawling wood-based sushi bar serves as the centerpiece for the premises. The logo design for the space was created by the Sexy Robot artist and sculptor, Hajime Sorayama.
3110NZ by LDH Kitchen will mount exhibitions for roughly four to six weeks at a time. The first exhibition will feature works by the influential Japanese postwar artist Keiichi Tanaami starting July 21. Visit NANZUKA’s website for more details.
