Open a little more than a week and already David Chang’s Momofuku is making a splash on the design scene in Las Vegas. The restaurant at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas dishes out a mix of American, Korean and Japanese fare with Chang’s own twist on steam buns, noodles and even surf and turf, in this case, chicken and caviar.
DesignAgency out of Toronto created the look and feel of Momofuku, taking inspiration from the brand’s other locations while creating a series of spaces. The space adds "fresh and luxurious textures, materials and artwork that complement its bold and playful vibe, and the allure of the Vegas locale."
Guests find dark floors as they pass through the different rooms, walking by an open kitchen, into a grand main room and a raised banquette hall-style private dining room. White oak, raw oiled steel and concrete fills the space, as do "touches of brass and peach-hued mirror — a nod to Las Vegas’ dazzle."
The restaurant features floor-to-ceiling views of the Strip as well as artworks "that celebrate Las Vegas’s vibrant spirit: a supergraphic installation by UK-based photographer Liam Wong; a red and grey, knitted lighting installation by Korean artist KwangHo Lee; and a five canvas, show-stopping graffiti installation by American artist David Choe."
Take a look around.
