André Fu designs Motif Restaurant & Bar at Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo

Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Marunouchi announced the scheduled opening in mid-April of the Motif Restaurant & Bar. Located on the 7th floor of the hotel and offering 270-degree views of the Tokyo Station area, Motif Restaurant & Bar will include the design of architect André Fu, who envisioned “a social salon where people meet, converge and gather.” 

When it opens, the venue will offer French cuisine created by the collaboration of head chef Hiroyuki Asano and culinary advisor chef Hiroshi Nakamichi.

Motif Restaurant & Bar will display a number of commissioned art pieces curated by Hong Kong-based art consultant Alison Pickett, including ceramics wall installation in gradating shades of mauve by Lok Ming Fung that adorns the entrance area, and a two-meter-high bronze feather sculpture by Yasemen Hussein in the signature bar area. The restaurant will also have a number of works by French artisan Hervé Van Der Straeten.
