RAMOPRIMO brings the colorful and overwhelming essence of south-east Asian atmosphere into KEAAMI restaurant in Beijing, which aims to offer an authentic contemporary Thai experience. Design is characterized by a kaleidoscope of colors and flavors where every single taste and spice is clearly defined and recognizable. Likewise, in the design, simplicity and straightness are standing out an explosion of multiple textures, creating a super colorful, playful and young vibe for the space.
▼餐厅交替显示蓝色、绿色和木色三种令人回味的色彩，the restaurant alternately shows the evocative colors of blue, green and wood
Walls are made of rotating prism columns. Each side is covered by color patterns and mounted on triangular basis. According to different rotation angles, the space can change look, by wearing the three main configurations of felt fabric, traditional bamboo and rattan straw mats and alternately showing the evocative colors of blue, green and wood.

Activated by customers, prisms can further rotate to create endless possible variations and the effect of a large lenticular printing wall which will change with the position of the viewer.

Name KEAAMI means “wooden island” in Thai and wood and sea have been taken as references for many elements in the design. The cozy and informal fresh beach atmosphere is further emphasized by light blue and sandy colors of terrazzo tiles on floor.

A touch of gold, as reference to one of the peculiar elements used in traditional Thai decoration, has been only bound to few decorative elements: stools along the high community tables and brass plates dotting the grey concrete walls on both sides of the space. Those elements, along with the main restaurant logo, have been inspired by the traditional Thai lotus flower.
