The new Claremont Tonic restaurant by Maison Davis and Hecker Guthrie is an eclectically styled restaurant with a pan-Asian menu that’s set to tease the taste buds of design aficionados. A mix of Japanese and Pacific influences designed by Australian interior design firm Hecker Guthrie. A lovely raw yet refined interior with the thematic idea that pay homage to Melbourne’s live music scene.
The interior consists of exposed concrete blockwork, rough-sawn timber floors and blackened steel screens. Timber tables and benches, freestanding joinery elements, exposed cinematic lighting and utilitarian French industrial chairs complete the theme.
Black is the colour of choice, highlighted with splashes of such as bespoke red neon light installations and gold statues. There is also an eclectic collection of found objects on the shelves and walls.
