The Catch is an izakaya-style restaurant, the home of contemporary Japanese cuisine in Berlin. It is sophisticated and yet relaxed, stylish and fun. Located in Charlottenburg, one of Berlin's most prestigious areas, THE CATCH connects a diverse public, creating a textured society of food lovers.
The interior is well thought through. We drew inspiration from the wabi-sabi philosophy or the Japanese worldview centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection. Characteristics of the wabi-sabi aesthetic include asymmetry, roughness, simplicity, austerity and modesty, as well as an appreciation of natural shapes, materials and processes.
The interior embraces techniques such as shou sugi ban (wood burning) and kintsugi (repairing broken pottery with touches of gold). To hint at modern day Tokyo, we integrated neon lighting and manga-inspired features.
