Walking into Future Future feels like slowly waking up from a dream. Carved from a quintessential Richmond red-brick building, the restaurant features a fascinating combination of styles and materials. The Future Future ethos embraces the Japanese concept of wabi-sabi (the finding of beauty in transience and imperfection) in both its menu and interiors. This creates a surreal but coherent, strange and intimate setting which is perfect for sampling their unique and delicious selection of food and drinks. The eclectic combination of materials have been brought together to great effect. The details are spot on; from the custom ceramic cups, embroidered uniforms, metal joinery, through to the retrofuturistic branding Future Future is difficult to describe but beautiful, and you’ll have to go and experience it for yourselves!
