With Hikari, restaurateur-entrepreneurs Jose Miguel Herrera, Nuria Morell and Clara Vidal are expanding their business methodically.
Hikari means “light” and one of the aspects of the project that attracted us from the start is the lighting. Interspersed with Masquespacio-designed, locally manufactured lighting are both neon signs and technical fixtures.
But the overall ambiance of not just the lighting, but the entire space is subdued, minimalist and slightly ascetic. Everything belongs and nothing distracts.
In the case of Hikari, Mascuespacio has emphasized this coherence with a well-edited material palette and with a visual language of orderliness and straight lines.
