Ruyi Dumpling & Wine Bar opened its fabulous Hecker Guthrie designed doors earlier this month in Melbourne. The 56 seater restaurant is a union of beautifully presented contemporary Chinese food, exceptional design and modern restaurant culture. Translating literally to ‘as you wish’, the name Ruyi derives from a Chinese heirloom symbolising power and good fortune.

The interior palate by Hecker Guthrie is a very specific nod to traditional Chinese crimson and jade colours, in a modern context which utilises oxblood accents and sage tones. The restaurant’s design is a contemporary approach to traditional Chinese colour palettes and textures, with restrained and sophisticated spaces. “Dumplings are such simple fare and so the fit out needed to have a sense of simplicity and earthiness to compliment this. We didn’t want the design to scream China; instead we wanted to subtly hint at the distinctly Asian influence” says Paul Hecker, principal of Hecker Guthrie.
