#OMG Japanese Restaurant in Hong Kong One Plus Partnership

Designed by One Plus Partnership, #OMG is a Japanese restaurant in Hong Kong. The restaurant name #OMG is a hashtag label commonly used in several major social media platforms, such as Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Google Plus, etc. Users create hashtags by placing a “#” sign before a word or a phrase. It allows them to express their feelings, and at the same time search for posts with the same hashtag.

In the design of this restaurant, the designers have incorporated a lot of concepts that are associated with the Internet and social media. They have chosen magenta as the main color theme of this restaurant. This color not only resembles sakura, a symbol of Japan, but is also a mix of the white and red colors on the Japanese flag.

To again resemble pixelated images, the designers picked square tables and chairs with right-angled corners. The booth seatings are made from solid surfacing to imitate rigid and angular pixels. The edges of the tables are painted in white oak color for decoration. These features of the furniture together create a harmonious and neat feeling. The name of the restaurant ‘#OMG’ on the main wall are being pixelated, presented in square forms, which continue to connect with the theme of this restaurant.
