As part of the Dexus building upgrade on Collins Street Melbourne, ISM created a bar, banquet seating and elevated structure for the street level foyer.

The bar is constructed from Ginger Caesar stone, acrylic, timber and powder coated aluminium, that together feel luxe and polished. Behind the bar, ISM created laminate joinery that is invisible to customers but functional for the baristas. Surrounding the bar and hugging the black leather banquet seating is a concealed steel frame that is clad with stone tiles. This surrounding structure is finished with a screen made from powder-coated steel and woven leather.

ISM truly showed our range of skills on this project. Creating a welcoming space feels that is illuminated by the street-facing double height glass windows.
