Danish firm Space Copenhagen based its interior design for the Musling restaurant on its surroundings, and used simple materials and colours.

"[We] worked towards an understated and honest approach to materials and ambiance, creating a space that reflects the nature of the open markets and resources outside – focusing on authenticity," said the studio.

The space features stained oak flooring, burnished steel tables, warm leather, natural surfaces and simple warm lighting.

High tables with corresponding barstools were all designed by the firm, along with the restaurant's centrepiece – a long iron bar.
