The irregular layout enriches the visual hierarchy, and create a source of enjoyment for the people who move around in peak dining hours. Contrasting with the conventional gray-white color system, the bright and vibrant colors are combined with the geometric pattern of different textures, which is not merely eye-catching but also reduces noise of the space.
