Harrods Sandwich Cafe
The Tom Dixon Sandwich cafe is situated between the designer’s two concessions on the third floor of Harrods, in London’s Knightsbridge area.
The project was undertaken by Dixon’s Design Research Studio, which focuses on large-scale architecture, interiors and installation projects and recently fitted out the Mondrian Hotel in London’s Sea Containers Building.
Mondrian London Hotel Interior
British designer Tom Dixon’s interiors outfit Design Research Studio used a 1920s cruise liner as a visual reference for interiors at the Mondrian London hotel, which opens today in the Sea Containers House building.
Design Research Studio created the interiors for the 359-room hotel, which occupies the south wing of Sea Containers House located between the OXO Tower and Blackfriars bridge on the south bank of the River Thames.
Originally intended as a luxury hotel, the building was designed in the 1970s by American architect Warren Platner and became offices for shipping company Sea Containers, from which it takes its name, before being bought by developers Archlane in 2011.
This maritime history was used as the starting point of the interiors concept for the hotel, which “embodies the elegance of a transatlantic 1920s liner” according to the designers.

Restaurant at Royal Academy London The refurbishment of the RA restaurant for Peyton and Byrne references and respects the long and illustrious history of the academy and its existing architecture, whilst injecting a strong sense of world class contemporary operational elements and a new level of comfort. The zones in the restaurant are inspired by some of the Royal Academy Greats: Turner, Paolozzi and Sir John Soane. High-quality finishes include velvet, brass, marble and lava stone. Soft lighting, rich, warm colour tones and juxtaposing textures contribute to the restaurant’s rich and welcoming ambience. Key design features include a contemporary cubic glass unit housing an extraordinary selection from the RA permanent collection of sculptures, acting as a room divider, and also a sculptural, deconstructed brick counter inspired by Paolozzi. The colour scheme has been selected to improve the experience of the existing murals painted onto the restaurant walls by previous Academicians.
