Antoni Tapies, one of the greatest Spanish artists after Antonio Gaudi and Pablo Ruiz Picasso, and the founder of Art Informel material painting, once said, Like a researcher in his laboratory, I am the first spectator of the suggestions drawn from the materials. I unleash their expressive possibilities, even if I do not have a very clear idea of what I am going to do. As I go along with my work, I formulate my thought, and from this struggle between what I want and the reality of the material - from this tension - is born an equilibrium.Antoni Tapies enabled materials to proclaim their own significance independently, and turned "humble materials" into works of art, taking on a mysterious and sublime radiance.
Inspired by Antoni Tapies, our respect for materials has turned into the springboard nurturing imagination in the design of the Shark Restaurant. Although whatever they really are like, base materials shall be decorated with surface materials, as such a humble positioning of base materials has become the starting point of the design rules and the industry consensus. However, we still decide to respect the original appearance of the base materials and release their expressive forces and, from art to reality, practically integrate the materials and the space, to create a purer and environmentally friendly space. Therefore, environmentally friendly putty and flame retardant plywood, two base materials, are chosen to shape the whole space.
