Design LSM has designed the interiors of new restaurant Beast, taking inspiration from Norwegian fishermen’s huts.

The restaurant, owned by the Goodman restaurant group, is located on Chapel Place, London, and is based on a communal fine dining concept.

LSM says, ‘Our solution also takes influence from Medieval banqueting halls and the restaurant features six massive tables, each one a thick slab of oak measuring six metres in length.’

Long benches made from green oak with scalloped seats run the length of each table, creating what LSM calls ‘a raw and brutal effect’.

This effect is offset with ‘softly lit rustic candle chandeliers and ornate candelabras’, which are dotted along the tables, says LSM.

 Diners are surrounded by lit tanks housing live king crabs, steak fridges, wine racks and an open kitchen.

As the food is ‘opulent and messy’ diners are encouraged to use concrete hand basins piled high with napkins, scented soaps and lemon chunks.
