Tom Dixon designed the interiors of new restaurant Bronte on The Strand, London.
The venue overlooks Trafalgar Square, with an arched glazed facade leading from the traditional colonnade terrace.
Inspired by the history of the Strand and Victorian explorers, the restaurant’s interiors are marked by a pink concrete breakfast bar, a green granite kitchen and a pewter cocktail bar.
Custom design furniture with green leather and black timber booths stretch throughout the main restaurant below walls adorned with shelves featuring historical objects dating back to the 16th century. Set to resemble a ‘“collector’s house”, the items are arranged into themed groupings of nautical, botanical and geological in different sections of the venue, marked by unique colour palettes.
Floor-to-ceiling windows let natural light into the pantry area, where a pallette leads to the main restaurant.
The interior features several Tom Dixon products including Fade, a teardrop-shaped cluster of gold pendants sitting over dining booths, Curve, a curved geometrical light and Plane, a wall lamp constructed from two interlocking square brass-plated steel frames enclosing a double layered white glass sphere.
Dixon’s other designs in London include Atrium, a hotel-inspired co-working space in Camden, Circus, a restaurant and bar in Shoreditch, and Tom Dixon Sandwich at Harrods in Knightsbridge.
The restaurant includes three originally designed pieces from Tom Dixon’s Design Research Studio.
