Shortlisted as one of the best restaurant designs in the Eat Drink Design Awards 2014, the Donna Bionda project, designed by Richards & Spence Architecture complements the original building fabric in the historic centre of Townsville in Queensland.
The concept draws on the atmosphere and aesthetic of a traditional Italian pizzeria, featuring warm, earthy, natural materials and tones. Materials such as face brick, copper and timber are used throughout the restaurant.
The Didier Fable chairs in solid American oak, supplied by Design Nation, fit perfectly in this modern industrial space that has a pared-back simplicity. The chair is part of the Didier Fable collection of solid oak seating, tables and storage that is exquisitely designed and crafted with complex manufacturing details that are disguised within a refined aesthetic. The furniture design embraces a basic need for simplified living.
