The decor of the Tokyo Eat is very contemporary with different elements designed by different people, and the architecture along with the unusual lamps, which look like UFOs out of an old film were designed by the architect Stephane Maupin.
The wall paintings were produced by the artist Bernard Brunon and the tables were the concept of the designer Ivan Fayard, yet when it comes to the chairs, there are a few different styles, which were all designed by emerging artists including Marcus Kreiss and Olivier Babin.
