Kent Hahne, successful restauranteur and cofounder of restaurant chain Vapiano, launched GinYuu, his latest concept restaurant, in late 2013. GinYuu signals a new gastronomic departure, offering a pan-Asian Pacific kitchen combined with a lounge concept and cocktail menu. A pilot restaurant in Bonn was followed in October 2014 by a second location in Stuttgart’s new Milaneo shopping mall. The latter was designed by Ippolito Fleitz.

The GinYuu materials world is all about wood. A relaxed atmosphere is brought about by the use of different types, colours and surfaces of wood, creating an almost Caribbean beach bar flair. The spatial topography centres around the core areas of reception desk, bar and kitchen counter.
