Banker Wire Mesh Satisfies Diverse Design at Carnevino Steakhouse

Woven Wire Mesh Provides Warm Yet Edgy Aesthetic for Hong Kong Restaurant

Publish Date: Tuesday, December 10, 2013

MUKWONAGO, WI…When the best steakhouse in Las Vegas opened a new location in Hong Kong, its designers turned to Banker Wire for help achieving the perfect design. At Carnevino, three types of Banker Wire mesh complete a vintage racing-inspired aesthetic, creating a dining space that is simultaneously welcoming and chic.

With Carnevino, 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 it deliver an upscale dining environment.

“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 project.

Banker Wire 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.

“Creating a warm inviting ambience is top priority for Carnevino and plays a huge part in providing its guests with the ultimate dining experience,” says Lin. “The wire mesh we used helped breathe life into the décor and brought the overall palette together in a truly rich manner.”

Banker Wire’s DS-1, SZ-4 and IPZ-25 mesh patterns 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 versatility of wire mesh makes it a perfect accent material for premiere dining establishments like Carnevino,” said Harrison Horan, Vice President of Banker Wire. “By utilizing three different wire meshes at its new Hong Kong location, diners will enjoy a unique visual experience that will set Carnevino apart from other restaurants in the area.”

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. Members of the project team include architects AvroKO, New York.
