Advertising alert – BRABBU ships worldide. Ego alert – We are everywhere. To prove it we will present you here two hospitality australian projects where BRABBU has its pieces, to be more accurate, you will find one of ours mid century modern furniture pieces and one of ours contemporary lighting pieces.
The first hospitality project is the Prix Fixe Restaurant with interior design by Fiona Lynch Interiors. A first time collaboration between two smart and seasoned operators in the Melbourne hospitality scene, chef Philippa Sibley and restaurateur Jason Jones commissioned Fiona Lynch to create their latest dining room, Prix Fixe.
Australia’s first ticketed restaurant, Prix Fixe embraces the inherent sense of theatre present in busy, dynamic restaurants. A physical expression of what is a bold, confident and directional move, the Prix Fixe dining room is formed from a material palette of mirror and marble, brass and metallic glazed linen, exposed ceiling fixtures and concrete. It’s moody yet inviting, luxe yet raw, and undoubtedly dramatic.
BRABBU’s “holywood star” VELLUM wall lamp, was the piece chosen by Fiona Lynch to feature in the decor of Prix Fixe Restaurant. The same piece featured also in the movie Fifty Shades of Grey, that why it was called Hollywood star.
The second hospitality project is the Sydney Rowing Club. The interior was designed by KW Interiors, one of the leading australian interior design companies. Overlooking the stunning Abbotsford waterway, Sydney Rowing Club is one of the best spots in Sydney to enjoy a cold drink with friends.
The brief was to carry out a soft-refurbishment of the club to create an upmarket look which compliments the water views, whilst still being sympathetic to the demographic & it’s rowing community history. We had to ensure that the interior of the club would be aesthetically pleasing when night falls and no longer allows the water views to be the main focus. New finishes & furniture were also selected for the terraces & outdoor dining areas as this is prime location for patrons to dine during the summer.
Consideration was given to the continued use of the Watergrill Restaurant for functions & weddings, therefore furniture & finishes were selected that wouldn’t override the event taking place. The colour palette chosen was derived from the surrounding water views with the continual use of different shades of blues throughout the club. If you look closely you will see that certain finishes & light fittings are also in-keeping with the ocean inspiration. The calacutta look cladded fireplace is a beautiful focal point of the club. Along with the beautifully upholstered furniture, they both work together to achieve a sophisticated & welcoming atmosphere for patrons.
