Custom Table design

Antica Pizzeria e Cucina is the new flagship pizzeria for restauranteur Anthony Crea. Franco Crea’s furniture design complimented the interior design inspiration for this restaurant perfectly.

Antica is a modernist Italian restaurant, based on influences from Anthony’s family heritage from Napoli, Italy. Inspiration for the restaurant was drawn from the old gated lane-ways of Napoli which open up into hidden piazzas. The paved lane-ways and brick vaulted ceilings all have strong influences on the space in creating a brick-on-brick narrative for the Antica.

Franco Crea’s furniture design language complimented the interior design inspiration from Genesin studio, using humble and honest materials like solid oak to add warm and a sense of inclusiveness to the warmth of other feature materials used such as brick.
