Case Haiku

Built around a maritime atmosphere, the sushi buffet Haiku invests in quality both in its service and its decor.

Built around a maritime atmosphere, the sushi buffet Haiku invests in service and high-quality ingredients. The quality can also be seen in the restaurants’ interior design where special attention has been paid to the selection of furniture and materials. The interior concept of the restaurant chain was developed by Standi’s Designer Saku Lumivirta. Standi has executed the interior design of four Haiku restaurants; two in Helsinki and two in Jyväskylä.

Haiku’s owner Emily Wu wanted to have an interior concept that challenges the traditional buffet format. “A buffet does not need to look like a school cafeteria. We want people to relax and enjoy high-quality food,” says Emily.

The customer’s goals were taken into consideration in the spatial design. Standi placed sofas and spatial dividers made of wooden strips in the space, boosting the intimate atmosphere and visuals. A furniture was designed for the buffet and integrated with the rest of the decor.

Haiku’s colours are full of fantastic contrasts. The union of salmon pink and petrol is pleasing to the eye and matches the rapids that form Haiku’s signature look. The warm shade of olive ash was selected as the wooden material for furniture and structures.

High-quality results – effortless cooperation

The furniture and image prints of the Haiku restaurants were produced at Standi’s workshop. In addition to the new restaurants, Standi has worked on the previous restaurants to build new furniture and touch up here and there. “The cooperation with Standi has been effortless. I appreciate the creative design and the high-quality in-house production,” says Emily Wu.
