‘I’m not a big meat eater, but I think this project is quite exciting and makes you want to order fillet steak!. It’s beautiful and elegant and I particularly like the choice of marble that looks like the marbling on meat, and yet it elevates it and makes it rather special. The display of all the knives is arranged so beautifully, that you would be tempted to go in to see the ‘poetry of butchering’ for yourself.’ CA

The reference itself to Selfridges’ history, exposing the building, the palm court and the deco detailing is executed superbly and really elevates the experience to something special. The quality of daylight and the integration of very high quality artwork into the space make it a unique experience.’ JT 

‘Very well executed. It embodies everything you look for in your favourite hotel or favourite social meeting place. A place of calm. Clever use of colour and detail. The design feels truly international.’ MM
