Le Pont de la Tour
Butler’s Wharf Building, 36 Shad Thames, London
Overlooking the River Thames beside Tower Bridge, in a stretch of a former shipping warehouse is the chic French restaurant Le Pont de La Tour. Leading up to its major refurbishment we supplied handmade glass samples to the designers, Russell Sage Studios.
We fine tuned our effects to create aged, slightly transparent glowing glass to be used as the kitchen pass window, all art deco framed in black polished glass, now contrasting against the shiny smoked white tiles. We made two vintage style bevelled mirrors for a montage trimmed with more black glass. Noticeably angled they appear to expand above the leather banquette seating reflecting the lamplit white linen-dressed tables.
Our hand antiqued mirrors reinvigorate the bar and maître d’ stations as in-set panels, the central decanter station, and as bevelled inserts into the paneled columns.
The Telegraph Luxury Drinking & Dining on-line Classics Revisited – 19 October 2015
“The dining room is now resplendent in inter-war glamour, all geometric mirrors and angular art deco-style chairs, tables topped with sparkling white linen and shiny brass lamps…taking inspiration from the legendary ocean liner SS Normandie.”
