Case Study — Metita

Meet Metita

Leading Aotearoa Chef Michael Meredith opens his restaurant Metita in the SkyCity dining precinct. Where traditional Pacific flavours are refined and reimagined for contemporary tastes. Attentive to every detail, the methods of the past and present are celebrated, creating new experiences that surprise the palate and nourish the appetite.

The elegant interior fit-out, by design studio CTRL Space reveals it’s inspiration. “The design takes on the unique forms inspired by the culture, cuisine and art of the Pacific”.⁠ “Directly inspired by traditional fishing tools and the essence of the ocean itself, the restaurant offers an immersive experience; where rich textures and high-end materials complement the sophisticated menu”.

The private dining room offers a unique and intimate experience, complemented by the bespoke art piece created by the talented Amanda Stowers at @masinacreative.⁠

Amanda explains the concept and meaning behind the piece: “I’ve deliberately chosen to tell Michael’s story – highlighting his journey and his deep connection with his mother. I’ve incorporated sea turn and gogo motifs, symbolizing wayfinding and navigation, to represent the journey [to create Metita]. In the centre is where you’ll find the actual Malu diamond motif, representing Metita herself as the matriarch and the anchor to the family, acting as shelter and protection over the space.”⁠
