A recent Brisbane Joinery and Shopfitters project, Lucky Luciano’s at Robina Town Centre, that celebrates authentic Italian flare.
Top restauranteur, Tom Chidiac is the mastermind behind the project and with the help of Brisbane Joinery’s director, George Chebib, they channelled the cobbled streets of Italy with recycled timbers, matured concrete, tan leather and sporadic greenery, to craft a vibrant space.
Tom Chidiac about the project;
At the beginning of the project, what were your goals?
“To have a restaurant which aesthetically stood out from the rest. I go to great lengths to create world class designs and I rely heavily on great contractors such as Brisbane Joinery and Shopfitters to make my vision a reality.”
What are you favourite elements?
“By far counters and gantries are stand outs. Great workmanship together with quality products makes all the difference.”
Brisbane Joinery’s George Chebib;
What custom furniture was made?
“Booth seating for main dining area; Tan coloured vintage leather upholstery, mild steel industrial look cladding, Japan black timber finishes and tables to match with custom made I-beam bases. We also made the outdoor settings.”
When you were first presented with the project, how did you approach it?
“When Tom first approached me with the design, I was excited to be working with such an interesting brief. Adopting the rustic Italian theme was a great challenge. We began by shifting through the plans and deciding on what the focal points for the restaurant would be- the counter fronts. From there is was just a matter of nailing down the other elements and making sure they all kept with the overall theme. I look forward to working with Tom and his exciting briefs on future projects.”
