DENFAIR marks a significant shift in the Australian design scene whereby the trade fair experience is of equal creative caliber to the content it represents. At the centre of this experience is the DENFAIR restaurant – a meeting place of food, design & celebration – and an emblem of the world status of Australian interior design today.

Here, the brief called for a unique interpretation of a series of interlocking dining spaces – unifying the transient nature of a temporary setting (lightweight, ease of install, minimal wastage) with the integrity of a permanent interior environment (quality, detail, composition).

In response, Fiona Lynch Studio tapped into its hallmark artistic approach to inventive use of space, materials and custom detail – adopting a palette of varied textures and horizontal mirrored bands to play on boundaries and sense of perception. The design concept further borrows from the relationship of contrasting textural qualities in nature – exploring reflective treatments, illumination and blackened tan bark flooring to disrupt the norm.

Combining a sophisticated restaurant, a laid-back café and a lively yet intimate Oyster Bar – Fiona Lynch Studio’s final design demonstrates DENFAIR’s commitment to elevating the trade fair experience as a way to inspire creativity, instil community and promote the relationships key to a healthy functioning local design industry.

The restaurant will be open daily from 11am till 3pm. Advanced bookings are required and recommended to avoid disappointment, to book email restaurant@denfair.com.au
