Dinner by Heston is Heston Blumenthal’s restaurant offering at Crown Casino in Melbourne. Located where his critically acclaimed pop-up restaurant Fat Duck was once situated, the space has been redesigned by Bates Smart Architects and reclaims some of the Aglo light fittings already installed at the site.
Aglo Custom team worked with Bates Smart and Crown Melbourne to design and manufacture unique pendants and table lamps. These complex light fixtures were handcrafted together and beautifully complement the environment, especially with the skyline backdrop.
The pendants were manufactured from delicate bent rods, with precision welding and were designed to hold the fine copper mesh with no visible fasteners. The table lamps were created by using press fits and magnets to avoid fasteners. Both the pendants and table lamps were electroplated to a bronze hand-brushed finish.
The lighting above the bar was manufactured from custom machined aluminium tubes then electroplated to a brushed bronze finish. The design required all screws and fasteners to be concealed – this was achieved using threaded components and press fits.
