Gaijin offers authentic north Asian flavours with a modern twist. The venue – which enjoys a superb location on Bulevardi in the centre of Helsinki – has an interior rich in natural materials – in particular, furniture and fittings crafted from solid finnish wood.
Adding a pure, solid, simple geometry to the space are rows of Aplomb pendants from Foscarini.
Cast in concrete and with their raw grey structure left exposed and unfinished, the pieces suggest traditional Asian pottery, while remaining resolutely modern.
