A new modern European restaurant and cocktail bar recently opened in the iconic 50 storey One Canada Square building in the heart of Canary Wharf. The venue, which is also called One Canada Square, is operated by ETM Group. It features interiors by renowned designers David Collins Studio and lighting produced by Dernier & Hamlyn.David Collins’ design concept was to take the existing fabric of the building and combine its bold use of austere marble for the post-industrial designs of the early 1990’s, with a softer dining aesthetic complemented by classic brassiere details. For the lighting this resulted in Dernier & Hamlyn manufacturing magnificent polished chrome chandeliers with weighty circular glass panels underneath. Each fitting is over 2m in circumference and has 15 LED lamps.
Tom Martin, co-founder of ETM Group says: “This venue is fast becoming the eating and drinking epicentre of Canary Wharf and the ambience created by the interior design and lighting is a fundamental part of its popularity.”
Dernier & Hamlyn joint managing director Jeremy Quantrill says: “The light fittings for One Canada Square are stunning and push the definition of chandelier to the limits. We love working on projects that bring new challenges and the brief from David Collins Studio certainly did exactly that.”
