Eight Partnership HK designs bakery concept in Japan around the traditional French boulangerie

Koko.jpgEight Partnership Hong Kong has unveiled a new café bakery concept in the northern Japanese ski resort town of Niseko. Located at the heart of the village, Koko is a modern take on the traditional French boulangerie, infused with a Japanese aesthetic.

Eight developed the concept and creative direction for the visual identity and the interior design of Koko, whose name is derived from the last character in the Japanese for "Niseko."  The brand identity, used in the logo and on packaging, includes an ink pattern inspired by the fluidity and transformative nature of water.

Koko also features an openly visible oven and European coffee machine to add a visual element to the aroma of freshly baked baked and pastries and barista grade coffee.
