Located in the heart of Petersham is Perama 2.0, the refurbished and revamped Greek Restaurant by helmed Greek Australian chef David Tsirekas. Giving the restaurant its brand-new look, interior designer Venesa Buljubasic of Anouk & Co has encapsulated Tsirekas’ cooking philosophies and brought them to life.
Accentuating the brass finishes and bold curvature of the bar is the Etoile 2lt Wall Light by Il Fanale. Buljubasic’s usage of the Etoile is well considered and ties in with the glamorous mood of the bar. A hint of Art Deco with a contemporary twist is the overall aesthetic, as the Etoile’s long cylindrical form works as a great separator between each set of shelving. Impact, functional and most importantly outright gorgeous.
Expanding on the brass motifs and curvature forms of the Etoile is the Bowery Glass Wall Light by Hudson Valley. Featured in the Aged Gold Bronze variation to contrast the white textured walls of the restaurant, Bowery protrudes from the wall and makes a statement with its scale.
The statement lighting fixtures featured above the bar are the Moby Dick Pendant Lights by Karman. Moby’s textural quality, a juxtaposition of an inner rough, frayed texture and a glossy smooth top, encapsulates the surrounding textures of the space. Above the shelving, the walls feature an organic and rough texture that provide a great interplay of contrasting textures with Moby. The arcs and curvature of the shelving are another bold feature that counteract Moby’s irregular dome-shaped shades.
