Carbon Steak

Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Kahler Slater partnered with Volante Group to bring a moody, yet intimate steakhouse to the city of Milwaukee. Guests can expect a boldly designed restaurant showcasing what Volante describes as a "luxurious ambiance." The space — which seats 116 people — will include a dining room, a cocktail lounge and an exclusive mezzanine area overlooking the entire restaurant. 

The aesthetic is built on a color palette of lavender and charcoal, augmented by dark wood and pendant lighting meant to imitate the reflective qualities of diamonds. The lights reflect from beneath a canopy of cascading purple wisteria on the restaurant's ceiling.
