Designed by Fettle - the Los Angeles and London-based design studio responsible for the glamorous interior at Moncks of Dover Street, this elegant dining venture combines various styles that perfectly complement the Art Deco lighting designed and manufactured 150 miles away in Derbyshire.

Northern Lights once again took great pleasure in working with Fettle to create genuinely bespoke lighting for this iconic London venue. The bar area extends into the adjacent full-height space, providing a combined capacity of fifty covers while also allowing for a bustling night-time scene in one of London's most vibrant areas. Our timeless antique brass table lamps provide a subtly comforting aura to every dining booth in the restaurant. The boutique-styled fixtures play a considerable part in forming the bar's classic Italian aesthetic. The hand-finished metal of the lamp's stem perfectly complements the rich hues of the leather seating and the darkened walnut wooden tables. 

 

Hanging above this space are several impressive bespoke multi-arm pendants complete with matt opal diffusers. The well-considered antique finish marries with the coating applied to the table lamps below. The pendants play a vital role in providing ample lighting to the entire restaurant, all while creating an aesthetic that takes one back in time to the days of Parisian brasseries being the height of dining fashion.

 

Elsewhere, bespoke banquette seating upholstered in an aged green leather wrap around the perimeter of the ground and mezzanine spaces complimented by booth seating and rope-backed dining chairs in tan leather. Our bidirectional antique wall lights bring even more personality to these spaces by offering a very personal lighting source. The lamp holders are contained within beautifully hand-finished reeded globes to finish these powerfully designed feature lights perfectly.

 

The Italian Art Deco homage continues into the more minor details, such as the signage and branding. It is epitomised in a specially commissioned mural that runs up the staircase, the illuminated neon sign hanging over the bar, and the futurist-inspired branding used within the logo and the menu.
