XOPP, the Latest Restaurant From the Family Behind Golden Century
It’s named after the dish chef David Chang has called “the best in the world”.
The impressive venue is located on the mezzanine level within Darling Square's striking new six-storey Exchange building designed by Japanese architect Kengo Kuma & Associates.
The dining room makes use of the circular building with floor-to-ceiling windows that show the timber that wraps around the facade. Inside, it's all very sleek with black ceilings, leather banquettes patterned light fittings.
The design of the restaurant aims to exemplify a unique dining experience for a new generation of diners. They will be surrounded by an eccentric combination of concrete architectural envelope, gigantic mechanical ducts, balanced with a mixed palette of natural timber, leather, woven flooring, just to name a few.
The dining area features a light palette of finishes to emphasise the transparency of the building façade, relishing ample daylight and airiness to the dining space.
Furniture are carefully curated with Dedece in Sydney, with Magis dining chairs and customised Kubikoff bar stools, focusing on comfort, with their overall aesthetic will compliment the overall dining experience.
The bar area presents itself as a darker ‘relative’ of the dining room –consistent with design details but with a twist. The dark wood veneered tables and leather banquette seating adds a more rustic and cozy environment for people to drink, nibble and relax.
Dimly lit with the carefully selected pendant lighting the bar will be popular destination for pre-dinner cocktails or a nightcap after dinner.
Conceived by Paring Onions, the Hong Kong-based design company fronted by Alex Wong, the room pops with radiant orange tableware and menus, emerald green chairs, and floral light fixtures
