INSTALLED: Momofuku Seiobo, Sydney
Chef David Chang, a Korean American, was recently named one the top 100 people by TIME Magazine, GQ's Man of The Year, one of the "21st Centuries Most Influential People" by Esquire - and for those lucky enough to secure a reservation at one of his famed eateries, that very much rings true!
With interiors by Sydney's Luchetti Krelle the restaurant enjoys a relaxed, contemporary vibe with timbers and stone predominant throughout and minimal decoration, calming the senses... perhaps to better hone them on the food!
Andreu World's new Moody Chairs by Lievore, Altherr and Molina have been used here for the first time in Australia, a wonderful launch project. They are matched with Moody Stools by the same designers - an extension of the Woody family of chairs and stools.
Lighting too was from KE-ZU, with Eden Designs "On Line" magnetic track lighting used throughout the restaurant, a specification that allows Momofuku to customise and rearrange their lighting as they see fit, day in and day out. The versatile system is used to great effect!
