Project Description

Smack, London

Our good friends, the Goodman restaurant group, came up with a new concept of selling just lobster rolls with amazing recipes and mixtures of flavours. They found this great site just off Oxford Street over two floors, the ground floor had a casual take away and sit in space to consume the lobster rolls and artisan soft drinks. Down in the basement there is a wine bar and restaurant.

The key design feature was the use of projectors to display images of mermaids swimming beneath the sea. The lighting had to be very atmospheric and we came up with the idea of making the floor float by using one of our many brilliant lighting techniques! In-ground Linear LED up lighting and wall washing, simultaneously creating atmosphere and drama in this incredible venue.

Tables were picked up with 10degree spots so that no stray light detracted from the projected images. Upstairs we used lots of copper and created pendants from copper funnels which threw a lovely warm pattern on each table.
