Xanthi Restaurant

Xanthi Restaurant

Located on the restaurant level of Sydney's recently opened Westfield, the fit out of Xanthi moves beyond the traditional stucco walls and blue shutters of a Greek restaurant instead drawing on the history of the restaurants namesake.

The Turkish influence is seen through the draped canopy, hand woven rugs and mosaic glass pendant lights. Like the grand bazaar in Istanbul, the space opens up from a narrow passageway alongside the walled in kitchen. 

Considered an oasis above the busy dining precinct within Westfield, the booth seating has Turkish Kilims draped over them with mirrored bases to give the feeling that the rugs are floating off the floor.

The Catifa Chair's by Arper were selected by designer Luchetti Krelle for their form, suggestive of a fantastical flying carpets.
