Tom Dixon’s Luxurious Alto Restaurant in Hong KongThursday 25 August 2016
Tom Dixon Design Research Studio has designed the interiors of Alto Restaurant, which is a new grill restaurant in Hong Kong. This restaurant is the first step into Asia for the design studio and has used the concept of the four elements; earth, air, fire, and water throughout. Fire is conveyed through the use of 230 gold mini Melt lights, a Tom Dixon-designed lamp, alongside blackened timber table tops and benches, and brass fixtures.
The luxurious project is replete with the Briton’s furniture and lighting designs. His architecture and interiors firm, Design Research Studio, designed the entire space. Even the walls and interior doors have metallic surfaces that recall the sheen on his best-known light fixtures.
There are also green marbles and terrazzo stone that indicates earth, while air is conveyed through the use of furniture with perforated surfaces. The Scent Elements candle collection is also used throughout, which gives off smells associated with the four elements.
In the same space, the all-black timber table tops, benches and Slab chairs are offset by a burst of blue in the upholstery of the Scoop chairs that surround the round banquettes. For a custom sculptural touch, rocks strung down ropes create a screen-like effect around the banquettes, which are illuminated by Fade pendants.
The VIP room focuses on the themes of air and oxidation, and it is in here that the Curve pendants and wall lights are with their soft silver finish and perforated surface.
