Claudia Kukrov from PSFK points us to the Sydney-based Koichi Takada Architecture firm creation and  design for The Cave Restaurant. The restaurants seeks to create the ideal acoustic dining experience, the firm explains.

We have experimented with noise levels in relation to the comfort of dining and the ambiance a cave like environment can create. The timber profiles generate a sound studio atmosphere, and a pleasant ‘noise’ of dining conversation, offering a more intimate experience as well as a visually interesting and complex surrounding.

The series of acoustic curvatures were tested and developed with computer modelling and each ‘timber grain’ profile has been translated and cut from computer-generated 3-D data, using Computer Numerical Control (CNC) technology.
