Inspired by its Greek suburb namesake, a massive gas works site, the area of Gazzi has been transformed into a thriving and popular retail hub known for an eclectic mix of cafes, bars and restaurants.

The new Gazzi Café in World Square exemplifies the new designer aesthetic of the area, which is complete with stores, graffiti art, food hot spots and travellers. The employment of pipes and steel refers to the industrial history of the Greek town, and contrasts the natural timber finishes and greenery of the space.

De Simone Design also managed the brand identity and logo of the café, along with the custom designed pendants, wall lights and tabletops, while chairs and stools are made available through Own World.
