Chef Heston Blumenthal’s first-ever London restaurant opens this week with interiors created by Tihany Design. Dinner by Heston Blumenthal at the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park features floor-to-ceiling glass walls, which will provide diners with a full view of the chefs in action. The 120-seat main dining room features materials such as wood, leather and wrought iron.
Much of the work at this year’s event is underpinned by sustainability, with designs from the likes of Mexico, the UAE and Scandinavia all being featured for their eco-friendly credentials.
MarinaTex, an organic and biodegradable alternative to traditional plastic, was developed by University of Sussex student Lucy Hughes.
The visual identity combines the club’s “illustrious heritage” and “future glory” with an eye to digital platforms and more casual fans.
