In 2013 Edge Design Studio was engaged to design a new bar and restaurant called Bull & Bear located at Aurora Place in Sydney’s CBD (formally Aurora Bar). Over two levels, the new interior is a contemporary take on a gentleman’s club with deep leather chesterfield banquettes, dark timber panelling, aged steel windows with ribbed glass, brass detailing and a mix of timber floor boards and mosaic floor tiles. The aim was to appeal to bankers, traders and financiers in the surrounding area which lent its self to an inherently masculine, sturdy design creating a rich and comforting atmosphere that locals can locals can feel at home in. Every piece of furniture and lighting was bespoke including upholstered leather arm chairs and bar stools with metal studs, tiled marble table tops, zinc dining tables, huge cantilevered copper spun wall lights and leather shade pendants.
