Le Blossom is the newest restaurant design project by Montreal-based Ménard Dworkind architecture & design, a killer hospitality venue created to provide the best Japanese food. Le Blossom is Ménard Dworkind’s non-traditional and futurist take on Japanese culture, located at the heart of Montreal’s Village.

“Drawing inspiration, in part, from the work of Hollywood industrial designer Syd Mead, the idea was to create a singular environment, free from the usual and overused Japanese-themed clichés that we’ve all been so accustomed to,” explains the design duo. “In the process, nods to Quebec’s own mid-century era — most notably through the use of terrazzo and ceramic tiles — were also thrown into the mix, as well as elements reminiscent of 80’s and 90’s Wall Street chic — for instance, the aluminium venetian blinds as well as the wall lamps.”

Behind the counter, the custom-made back bar shelves create a nice impression of both order and chaos, as all of the structure’s compartments have been cut in different sizes,” explain Ménard Dworkind. “Moreover, each compartment has been decorated with an individual mirror, while a large dotted wooden panel has been placed above the shelves to give the whole area just the right amount of cohesion.”

But let’s not forget Le Blossom’s centerpieces – an homage to the name of the restaurant itself. The large cherry blossom tree stands right in the middle of the room measuring 5 meters in width and 3.5 meters in height, acting as the restaurant’s own “totem pole”. The tree was custom-made in China before arriving in Montreal for assembling. With four lamps resting at the base and providing the tree with a smooth, upward lighting, its breathtaking pink silk foliage is bound to leave anyone who enters the room in a state of awe.
