The latest issue of Cubes features Peter Tay, WOHA’s latest office building and a slew of seductive F&B establishments.

Yet, restaurants provide a platform for designers to create seductive, highly sensual experiences. For this reason, we’ve zoomed in on some of the newer restaurant designs that have recently mushroomed in Singapore, and look at what designers like Terre, Takenouchi Webb and Axis.Point Design have done of late.
