Graham Baba Architects has created a new urban food-shopping experience, an offshoot of the Seattle-based Uwajimaya grocery store chain.
To light the space, the designer uses nine SAVOYE fixtures, eight PUNCHEON pendants and three PROSPERITY No. 22 pendants.
“Kai” is the Japanese word for “ocean”; the store is an open and transparent space, including a live seafood tank and master fishmonger station. A neutral palette of materials turns attention to colorful foods and products.
Kai Market occupies 5,500 square feet of the 400 Fairview Building in the South Lake Union neighborhood of Seattle.
The nine Ø 48″ x 16″ SAVOYE shades are covered in Carnegie Fabrics’ XOREL “Quarry” 6619-99; oil-rubbed bronze powder coat metal finish.
Eight PUNCHEON 5.5-15 pendants are also covered in Quarry 6619-99.
Three PROSPERITY No. 22 pendants round out the lighting palette: Ø 22″ by 12″ high shades are covered in “Meteor” 6427-21.
