Basho Sushi Bar has 8,400 Flying Chopsticks On its Ceiling

With its 8,400 chopsticks suspended on a ceiling, Basho Sushi House in Porto is a space highlighting the work of a sushi chef. Designed by Paulo Merlini, the bar is only a 25-square-metre space where the installation marks a central point of the restaurant, adding a touch of magic to the dining experience. The symmetrical artwork hangs above visitors’ heads, resembling a profile of an Asian temple. It was made with respect to the local tradition and aesthetic as a tribute to the art of Japanese cuisine.
