Japanese restaurant chain Moshi Moshi opens its revamped London flagship in London’s Liverpool Street next week, with interiors created by Japanese designer Yusaku Kaneshiro. The £500 000 project is Kaneshiro’s first in the UK. According to Moshi Moshi operations manager Eddie McAdam, the ‘futuristic’ interiors aim to replicate ‘contemporary Japanese’ style and feature ‘industrial shapes’ and a rich colour palette. The chain plans to open its fifth restaurant and a yoga centre on London’s Ironmonger Lane later this year, also created by Kaneshiro.
