Retro-elegant harmony in pastel tones. This is how we would describe the new restaurant and cocktail bar Clerkenwell in Melbourne, designed by Biasol. This cocktail bar is located in an old industrial warehouse that was transformed into a fancy restaurant with comfortable furnishings and decor with retro lines.

The space is dominated by wood and designer furniture in pastel tones that create an elegant and relaxing atmosphere.
Designers retained the old wooden floor, which contrasts the new luxurious furniture with retro charm. The chairs are covered with velvet in soft pastel pink, while the big bench is covered in navy blue. The same shade is used for part of the walls.
The retro atmosphere in the interior is created with the brass lighting and decor, which is used as a material for the legs of the chairs and the marble tables. The decor is mainly composed of interesting mirrors with rounded lines and gentle lighting in vintage style. The architects wanted to achieve an elegant, but still a lively and lively interior, which will create a contrast between the old industrial atmosphere in the space.
