Yi Pin Xiao Long is a, Shanghai inspired, Soup Dumpling Restaurant chain. NAO was approached by them to redesign the Restaurant Identity with the intention of applying the design to multiple locations. Our design concept was to put the art of dumpling making on display and to use the fundamental elements that make up a dumpling steamer to create the interior environment. Using solid and woven Bamboo, often in Herring Bone Patterns, the space is able to be representative of the steamers and simultaneously harken to its Shanghai roots.
