Food and furniture

London-based restaurant The Modern Pantry is looking to present a winning combination of food and furniture for its Soho pop-up shop, which opens next week.

The pop-up shop, located at Meza on Soho’s Wardour Street, has been designed by restaurant founder Anna Hansen and will include furniture pieces by Danish furniture design consultancy Fritz Hansen.

The Danish furniture power house was responsible for the iconic Egg Chair and designers such as Hans J. Wegner, Arne Jacobsen, Poul Kjærholm and Piet Hein all worked for the company before – and while – establishing their own studios.

Hansen is keen to tap into Soho’s vibrant and creative eatery spirit. She says, ‘I love its strong sense of community and diverse entrepreneurial spirit and look forward to being a part of it for a while.’

And if some tasty grub and a stylish perch weren’t enough for you, a quid from every bill will goes towards charities helping those affected by the recent earthquake in New Zealand.

The Modern Pantry at Meza is at 100 Wardour St, London W1Ffrom 22 March. The restaurant will go west for one month before returning to its Clerkenwell homeland.
