Nestled at the very top of Harrods, London’s most iconic department store, lies Swedish chef Björn Frantzén’s latest restaurant offering.
Feature 'Christmas Light' chandelier and bespoke hammered flush mount chrome pendants.
Studio Frantzén offers critically acclaimed Nordic cuisine with an Asian twist, where diners can expect a fully immersive experience as they enjoy their dishes ‘from the fireplace’.
The aesthetics echo the flagship restaurant Frantzén in Stockholm, set in a luxurious and contemporary interpretation of Scandinavian design.
Swedish designers Joyn Studio were appointed to transport guests from luxury retail to fine dining gastronomy. Nordic energy is injected throughout the impressive double-height atrium and roof terrace overlooking London’s skyline below, where everything from custom tableware, a hand-painted mural and bespoke luminaires has been meticulously designed to create a harmonious, connected atmosphere for guests to enjoy.
In the atrium, the lighting emphasises the sheer grandeur of the space with a bespoke French tip candle chandelier, the creation of which was born from true collaboration between designers, consultants and suppliers. Artisan fabricators at Northern Lights worked closely with Front Studio, the concept creators for the chandelier, interior designers Joyn Studio, lighting consultants Lighting Design International, and the Harrods project management team to realise such an ambitious piece in less than eight weeks.
Inspired by the beauty of Swedish Christmas lights, this stunning chandelier is engineered by our designers and artisan fabricators to float effortlessly in mid-air, with only 14 fine suspension wires for such a large statement piece. Northern Lights used mild steel to construct the arms to maintain structural strength, keeping each arm floating in space as straight and true as possible.
To complement this striking statement piece, the mezzanine ceiling houses fifty bespoke hammered flush mount chrome pendants, ensuring guests below experience an interesting viewpoint of decorative lighting to further add to the intrigue and drama of the building.
The luminaire parts are all replaceable on-site and require minimal maintenance. British manufacturing keeps sustainability top of mind through a localised supply chain and a reduced logistical carbon footprint.
