Recognised as one of Belle Magazine’s Top 5 Australian creative talents in 2013, Interior Designer and Creative Director of AZBcreative, Alex Zabotto-Bentley has spent the last couple of decades making a name for himself as a respected asset to the Australian design, fashion, media and hospitality industries.

A creative force and visual mastermind, Alex has worked simultaneously with the Saigon Street team to create a Vietnamese oasis in the heart of Seminyak, Bali. With years of extensive overseas research trips under his belt, Alex and the team at AZBcreative have created an electric interior that pays homage to traditional Vietnamese dining.

Alex’s work in interiors forms a list of acclaimed projects including the highly praised Masterchef Dining Experience 2013 at the Museum of Contemporary Forecourt in Sydney and the rooftop of Crown Casino in Melbourne, The Lexington Bar at GPO Melbourne, The Emerald Room at Industrie South of France, Truckstop at Bondi Road, Merivale Food and Wine Festival 2015 and Petitenget restaurant in Petitenget, Bali.

Featuring hand sewn fibres and neon accents surrounded by a lush green laneway, design fans and travellers alike can expect to experience one of the most inspirational hospitality spaces in Bali at Saigon Street.
