We chose Banker Wire mesh due to its quality and reputation as a leading manufacturer of unique materials," says Cliff Lin, Senior Designer at New York-based architectural firm AvroKO, which oversaw the Carnevino Steakhouse. "The wire mesh we used helped breathe life into the décor and brought the overall palette together in a truly rich manner.
Award-winning steakhouse Carnevino, already a popular restaurant destination in Las Vegas, was looking to make an immediate impression for diners at its newest location in Hong Kong. Chefs and restaurateurs Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich aimed to bring the highest quality steaks to central Hong Kong. Its luxurious design – featuring metallic accents by Banker Wire – helps Carnevino to deliver an upscale dining environment.
At Carnevino, three types of Banker Wire mesh complete a vintage racing-inspired aesthetic, creating a dining space that is simultaneously welcoming and chic. To turn this vision into reality, Carnevino's designers utilized wire mesh from Banker Wire, giving the decor key metal finishes that fit perfectly with the race-inspired machine aesthetic.
Banker Wire architectural mesh was used in the restaurant’s wine cellar, dining room and private dining area as a background accent for stone, metal and leather paneling. The weaves add depth and texture to Carnevino’s walls for a unique visual experience.
Banker Wire's DS-1, SZ-4 and IPZ-25 architectural mesh styles were chosen for this project. At Carnevino, SZ-4 and IPZ-25 weave copper with stainless steel to create reflective surfaces that emanate a warm glow in the restaurant’s soft lighting. The opaque stainless steel DS-1 pattern combines gentle, flat wire with straight wire to produce a robust, symmetric fabric that adds to the space’s warmth. The use of architectural wire mesh brings depth and texture to Carnevino's walls, providing a visual experience that conveys luxury and richness.
Carnevino was named one of South China Morning Post’s Top 100 Tables and selected as one of Luxe Magazine’s Top 10 Wine Pairing Restaurants in 2013.
