TROIS VISAGES; our passion
In order to fully enjoy entire time at TROIS VISAGES, we would select everything with our special care.
We visit producers as many people as possible, not only for foods, also for cutleries and furniture that our customers use at our restaurant.
Naeme Farmers Stand
This Kamogawa-based producer pursues ‘cultivation’ and ‘harvesting’, growing vegetables, herbs and edible flowers with rich flavors and aromas, with pesticide-free or no chemical fertilizers.
We’ve borrowed a part of their field as Trois Visages farm, and we grow tomatoes, zucchini, and other vegetables, as well as seasonal herbs. Our aim is to grow vegetables and herbs that have a strong bitter taste or acidity rather than the current ones that are light or sweet taste. Also, we have a very strong sympathy with their activity for garbage compost, and we are cooperating with them for this activity together. We don’t know yet how far we can reduce the food waste though, we are for sure that starting this initiative will help us to concern more about the environment matters.
Mitosaya Botanical Distillery
They are the distillery with the philosophy of ‘from small discoveries in nature’. They make the products using their fruit trees, medicinal herbs, and regular herbs grown in-house, as well as the partners throughout Japan who grow the rich crops. Mitosaya has a partnership with Naeme, they use herbs that are as much close to nature as possible, and try to produce a special drop by their distillation. So, their amazing eau-de-vie is that the ingredients are ‘there’ rather than just ‘scented’…
In the dishes at TROIS VISAGES, we would think to emphasize the ‘aroma’ of seasonal ingredients in order to express its best season. We would able to add the rich aroma of Mitosaya’s eau-de-vie on our cuisine. Also, it can be a gorgeous digestif, of course…
Dishes & Cutleries
Our chef encountered this brand when he was in France, and wanted to use it in Japan after returning. This tableware maker began with cutlery at the beginning, pursuing smart design and functionality. The coloring is unique, and the matte texture and soft colors with the dishes are one of their signature lines.
Keicondo is a ceramic artist based in Kasama, Ibaraki, offering dishes for specially for cuisine. He puts his own origin into his work, and creates vessels that reflect ingredients and food.
Atsushi Funakushi is also a ceramic artist based in Kasama, Ibaraki, same as Keicondo. His dishes are mostly monotone such as white, black and silver with distinctive shapes, giving a very modern look.
Our chef impressed with its glazed on his works, so we asked to order some plain white plates and a lamp shade at the entrance.
This is the glassware that our chef uses at home. According to the artisans, ‘glass is alive’, there are glasses and vessels for various uses, also shapes and patterns. Their aim is to create their tableware that will stay with the times in everyday life. Also, even if the glass chips, it’s possible to maintain it by grinding and adjusting, and it can be used for a long time. We believe that the long-lasting usability of the products goes along with our concept.
This brand is specialized in cutlery began in the factory in the town of Taipas, Portugal.
They continue to produce products with delicate, simple form, and high quality, and they are loved from all over the world. Everyone has seen and touched to these traditional products at least once. And we asked to apply surface treatment twice to the manufacturer in Fukui, to have more durability and more quality of using, and then, the color was finished our original bronze one.
It goes well with the interior setting in natural atmosphere in our restaurant.
The founder who used to be a restaurant owner founded this brand himself to pursue a knife that cuts well for meat dishes.
We chose PERCEVAL knives for our main dish plate by the reason for those made to cut meat beautifully.
The number = 9.47 engraved on the handle indicates the alcohol content of the wine he was drinking while he talked with his team about a knife he wanted to create. The episode of the number not to forget the thoughts at that time is also impressive, and we also as a team of TROIS VISAGES now are overlapping our future with this story.
Interior & Space designs
Our space is designed with materials that have been with us since ancient times, such as plastered walls with excellent humidity control, originally blending plaster and diatomaceous earth, Japanese cedar form Yakushima, and Oya stone its unique character, under the concept of ‘comfort without making you feel conscious of it’. We hope you will always feel at ease as if you are surrounded by nature.
The space creates high quality cozy atmosphere with simple beauty by simple, beautiful, and comfortable dining chairs designed by Hans J Wegner and Borge Mogensen, and the lighting created by Louise Poul Henningsen, the father of modern lighting that fills the space with gentle and soft light.
