In a refurbished Art Deco era auto workshop in Sydney’s Woolloomooloo sits Riley St Garage, a gritty New-York borough inspired bistro. Realised by RAD Studios, the renovation plays up the industrial and structural elements of the space with exposed brick and the huge air conditioning duct that becomes a dominant design feature, delineating the central bar area. Gloss black subway tiles and tan leather banquettes as well as the vintage medicine cabinets in the bathrooms add to the retro-classic feel. Images via RAD Studios.

 

Chaotic, fragmented and vibrant, Philippe Starck’s take on Asian fusion is a crazy blend of cultures and colours. In the futuristic design, technology comes to the fore – the surface of the 26 metre long table is constructed from screens looping news channels from all over Asia, while scattered grains of rice are projected onto the walls. Combined with psychedelic wallpaper and eclectic lighting, the effect is of entering a world somewhere between Bladerunner and Alice and Wonderland. The concept revolves around the fictional Miss Ko – a faceless character covered in Yakuza-style full body tattoos that symbolise the junction of the modernity and traditions of Asia, as designed by Horikitsune and photographed By Uli Weber. Her form links the graphic design with the interior, giving the insanity of the space a strong sense of narrative. More at Designboom.
