Mad Mex is already an established brand on the market of restaurants with a well-defined character. Their most recent opening is in Zetland, Sydney where the brand collaborated with Morris Selvatico to design a new cool place for those who appreciate Mexican food.
Morris Selvatico is a Sydney based interior design studio specialized in commercial spaces. They are focusing on the concept behind each design and for Mad Mex they were definitely the best choice.
Even though the theme of the restaurant is inspired by the Mexican street food, it doesn’t mean that it has to look like a fast food. Because this is not a fast food. Everything is freshly made from scratch, every day so the place had to reflect this special quality.
The design of this new restaurant is modern and fresh, with original elements that remind of the theme of the restaurant. Mad Mex has a well know trade mark, the Corona chandelier. For this place, the designers took it to another level and brought in an industrial vibe by connecting the Corona bottles with pipes.
The inspiration of the restaurant, which is the street food is reflected in the rough, unpolished elements like the concrete and brick walls exposed and decorated with traditional Mexican fighters. The “lucha libre” fighters are an emblematic figure of Mexico and here are just the splash of color that was needed to remind of the specific of the restaurant.
