The interior of the Tamarin Thai restaurant was given a makeover in honour of its tenth anniversary. The new interior design concept is the handiwork of Standi’s interior designer Saku Lumivirta.
Saku Lumivirta wanted to highlight Tamarin’s story in every restaurant and to move away from a strict and rigid interior design template. For this reason, the interior design concept was planned so that all the restaurants share a uniform basic look, but each restaurant has its own character and personal style.
The new interior design concept was first introduced to the Tamarin in the Kauppakeskus Seppä shopping centre. The newly complete Tamarin’s interior exudes a “street food” feel. The restaurant’s dining area is decorated with large-format wallpapers with a Thai street food theme. Saku coordinated the multicoloured and ornate fabrics on the restaurant’s seats to match the interior design concept. The same ornate pattern is repeated in the wooden cladding on the restaurant’s walls. Colourful fabrics add some spice to the warm and unique atmosphere. The new look also contains familiar Tamarin elements, such as warm wooden surfaces and the corporate brand colour, green.
Saku Lumivirta has been responsible for the Tamarin restaurants’ interior design since the very first restaurant. Saku has fine-tuned his knowledge of the customer’s wishes and perspectives. Restaurant owner Kenny Wu has praised Saku and Standi for good cooperation. “Our thoughts and ideas resonate well with Saku and working with him is smooth and stress-free. Good design is the foundation for everything, and that’s where Standi has really outdone itself,” says Kenny Wu.
