2003 - 2014
142 studios completed throughout Japan
ABC Cooking Studio operates more than 140 studios throughout Japan that offer a variety of cooking classes. In an effort to create a brightly lit, enjoyable cafe-like space that departs from conventional ideas of what a cooking studio ought to look like, eight colors were used for the facade, while pieces of furniture were scattered throughout the interior. The result is a playful space that conforms perfectly to ABC's philosophy of helping to create "smiles on faces at dining tables throughout the world". The interiors of these studios have successfully created an easily recognizable brand image that is immediately evident from the facade, winning much positive feedback.
2005 - ongoing

This is kids' version of ABC Cooking Studio where 4 -12 year old children learn the basics of food. Decorative details such as pink sinks and crescent moon shaped tables are fun and even functional. Tables and stools, carefully designed in children dimensions, are placed at random to generate dynamism into the space.
