The architect Vincent Coste redesigned the interior of the Japanese restaurant Koï located in Aix-en-Provance, France, decorating the entire eatery with monochromatic illustrations of the koï fish done in the style of the yakuza tattoos.

In order to add color, the architect used timber for the benches and floor and bright red steel chairs for the bar. The fish motifs continue in a burgundy hue in the restrooms and on the terrace.
