Designed by Elenberg Fraser, the overall concept of Shannon Bennett’s flagship restaurant Vue de monde on the 55th floor of the Rialto is the abstract Australian landscape, in particular, the landscape of Melbourne and its waterways. The Yarra River, the reeds, the billabong, Australian animals and insects – the platypus, fireflies, frilled neck lizards and kangaroos – were all referenced for inspiration. The design celebrates Australiana in its true essence – its sense of wonder and its contradictions, possessing both wildness and sophistication.
