In order to realize the image of a large hull floating in the air by the designer, the CFRP-based sandwich structure is fully constructed with lightweight and high-stiffness structure so it does not require any other suspensions from the ceiling or the floor. Although its structure is invisible from outside due to the decoration, it became a study case of materials, methods of constructions/manufacturing which embody a futuristic design concept.

This dining won the "Hotel Dining Category Best of Year 2019" by "Interior Design" magazine in the US.
