Anthem Cafe & Bar in Japan

The spare yet evocative interiors of Anthem Cafe & Bar in Japan were designed by Tokyo-based Tamiser Antiques (profiled yesterday on Remodelista). Stacks of vintage magazines, tin cans filled with beach stones, and simple, rough-hewn furniture comprise the decor.

Located on the fourth floor of a traditional wood building, the space also serves as a venue for Baroque concerts (lute, harpsichord, gamba, violin); the menu includes pesticide-free vegetables grown in the Hyogo Prefecture. For more information, go to Anthem Cafe & Bar.
