Osha Thai Restaurant, Bangkok
For the San Francisco brand, Osha, founded by a Thai-American brother and sister duo, dwp were asked to create the interiors for their new restaurant, bringing the brand to a prominent location in central Bangkok. Osha is set over two levels with external spaces.

This luxury and traditional Thai restaurant, with a contemporary twist, features a changing atmosphere between day and night, and exciting visual effects. The design 'story' is focused on an ancient Thai mythical creature, Hanuman. Dramatic 3D mapping projections enliven the outside of the building, as well as the ceiling within the restaurant itself. This provides an ever-changing canvas of artwork on surfaces. The general tone is dark with highlights of rich gold leaf and a Thai-inspired colour selection.

Dramatic highlights include an entrance vestibule, clad in a gold laser-cut patterned screen, through which light is projected for a stunning visual effect on entry. The main space is double-height overlooked by the mezzanine level, at the end of which dwp inserted a circular gold-leaf-clad platform, sitting above the bar - also a curved gold sculptural feature. A staircase winds around the side of the bar up to the platform, dominated by the elaborate hanging 'Chada', an over-scaled reproduction of a traditional Thai headpiece, in gold leaf, coloured mirror and jewels, custom-made by a traditional Thai sculptor.

This was an interesting challenge, to essentially present a Thai restaurant that is unique and has originated in San Francisco to Thailand within a city full of authentic Thai Restaurants. The food offering is traditional Thai offered in a contemporary format, which inspired the design. The overall effect is a deliciously opulent design with rich Thai reference, brimming with wow factors that create a truly unique destination experience.
