Decor & Design

The unique design and décor of TESSA was conceived by the architectural firm of BatesMasi.

On entering TESSA, you are immediately struck by the exposed whitewashed brick walls and the double layered blackened steel security gates that cover the entire ceiling. These gates, suspended from the ceiling at different levels, create both a bold design statement and a screen concealing the restaurant’s mechanical systems. 

Gates and the diamond patterns created by the gate openings, continue as a theme throughout the space – in the gate wrapped bar and in the industrial scissor lamps. Additional industrialized elements like diamond steel plate stairs, blackened steel bathroom sinks, herringbone woven telecommunications cables are on display throughout the restaurant.

The design combines industrial and urban elements with rustic charm creating a compelling and striking setting that is elegant, inviting and comfortable. The inspiration and design concept for TESSA was to pull in the feeling of the city streets celebrating the mundane or utilitarian aspects of the cityscape and create a transformed version of the City within TESSA.
