Beautiful Japandi Design at Studio Frantzen in Harrod

London’s culinary scene has a new star on the rise, and it's none other than Studio Frantzén; an exquisite restaurant nestled within the well-known Harrods department store. Designed by the ingenious Joyn Studio, this new hot spot combines Scandinavian sophistication with the elegant minimalism of Japanese design. Introducing the up-and-coming beauty known as Japandi design.

Upon stepping into Studio Frantzén, guests are greeted by an intriguing entrance—a domed reception area reminiscent of Scandinavian church architecture. Here, the ambiance is set by the warm embrace of cherry wood cladding and illustrations of Nordic fauna on the ceiling. The combination of these elements creates an inviting space that begs to be explored. As you wander further into the restaurant, the captivating design unfolds across multiple levels. The ground floor hosts a bar illuminated by back-lit glass bricks, creating an amber glow that resonates throughout the space. This bar, inspired by traditional Japanese izakaya, sets the stage for a very unique experience. 

As you continue to the main dining area, visitors feel the blending of cultures with the Japandi design. Terrazzo and marble floors lead the way to two distinct dining halls. In one, the open kitchen blends with bespoke timber seating. Find yourself a seat among the chunky booths and sofas carved from end-grain wood. The second hall, a marvel in itself, reflects the geometric aesthetics of the bar. Find sliding timber doors and a gridded wooden ceiling to form a space for ultramarine benches and delicate paper lampshades, bringing a touch of modernity to the space. 

The journey doesn’t end there. Venture to the upper floor, where the mezzanine awaits, adorned with intimate dining booths and vibrant design accents. Burnt orange carpets and art installations by the likes of Caia Leifsdotter create an atmosphere that stimulates the senses. Last but not least, make your way to the rooftop terrace—an incredible seating area offering panoramic views of the city. Marble, rattan, and wood harmonize in this space, inviting guests to experience both elegance and comfort.

Joyn Studio's vision for Studio Frantzén stretches beyond just design—it's about creating an experience that blends tradition with innovation. It’s a testament to their commitment to redefining luxury in unexpected yet delightful ways. For young professionals looking to explore the art of design, Studio Frantzén at Harrods is an invitation to explore the boundaries of culinary and aesthetic experiences. It’s more than a restaurant—it’s a design masterpiece. We can’t wait to experience the incredible Japandi design of this new space.
