We recently completed the installation for one of the World’s most famous restaurant groups, The Ivy Collection. The new restaurant, called Brasserie of Light, with a 24ft crystal statue by British artist Damien Hirst taking centre stage, opened inside the iconic London department store, Selfridges, last month.

The Art-Deco all-day brasserie offers a menu of British classics and internationally-inspired dishes, with the kitchen helmed by Emanuel Machado.  At the centre of the restaurant is a striking artwork by artist Hirst – a 24ft crystal-encrusted statue of Pegasus, with a 30ft wingspan, galloping above diners. It is Hirst’s largest scale artwork in London to date. Designed by Martin Brudnizki, the light-filled restaurant is part of the final stages of the department store’s £300 million investment in its flagship location – for more about the restaurant, head to Selfridges.

Tony Dickinson, Sprint’s Project Director, said:

This was a very important and satisfying project to delivery for our client, within one of the world’s most famous department stores, and the challenges that go hand in hand with working in this environment, delivering to both our clients, and Selfridges’ expectations.

Justin Hardy, Head of Design at The Ivy Collection, added:

Another excellent installation delivered by Sprint on time and to specification, meeting our expectations of quality.
