Restaurant Visit: The Millswyn in Melbourne

December 3, 2010

Newly opened Melbourne restaurant the Millswyn is located in South Yarra, across from the leafy Royal Botanic Gardens. Design studio Hecker Guther integrated an array of domestic objects in the Nordic-inspired interior: an old-fashioned straw broom is mounted on one wall, Italian farmhouse porcelain lights provide illumination, and ceramic jugs serve as water dispensers. Photos by Earl Carter.
