It's no small feat at all that out of 900 entrants, the stunning interior for Smalls Wine Bar created by Fiona Lynch Design has been shortlisted for the 2016 International Restaurant and Bar Design Awards.
Smalls is an intimate wine bar located in an atmospheric laneway in Melbourne. The brief to Fiona was to create a space that reflected the intimacy and boutique nature of the small producer wines that are served at the bar. Collaborating with local Melbourne makers to create a bespoke ceramic bar and leather makers to produce the leather panelling the wine bar has an authentic craftsman appeal, with mixes of textures that are clean lined, industrial and epicurean. The material palette of Smalls is a mix of white and black stone to the perimeter banquets with a rich bar of custom ceramic tiles, stone and oak strappings.
