Known for their digital interactive installations, teamLab‘s newest piece enhances the dining experience of guests at Tokyo’s Sagaya restaurant. The exclusive eatery allows just eight customers a day, who will now immerse themselves in an interactive dining experience. The multi-sensory event draws on taste, smell, and the beauty of Japan as an ever-changing table bounces with imagery created especially for each course.

The walls and table fill with teamLab’s digital images, created to immerse each diner in a unique world. Titled Worlds Unleashed and then Connecting, the collective explains that “when a dish is placed on the table, the scenic world contained within the dish is unleashed, unfolding onto the table and into the surrounding space. For example, a bird painted on a ceramic dish is released from the dish and can perch on the branch of a tree that has been unleashed from a different dish.”

In this manner, dimensions meld together, creating a hypnotic display. And while interactive restaurants aren’t new, teamLab’s contribution elevates the art form to a new level.

Hosting just eight lucky diners a night, Sagaya is an interactive restaurant that plays on the senses.
