David Thulstrup has created the concept of Ikoyi in London, United Kingdom.

David Thulstrup has designed the evocative new home of Ikoyi at 180 The Strand, aligning the restaurant's architecturally definitive interior with the Brutalist character of its landmark building.

As a result, the space is imbued with an atmosphere that speaks to the intensity and boldness of gastronomy.

"Through strong architectural gestures and a material palette reduced to its essence, copper, stone, steel mesh, leather, oak, creating a space of drama and calm," said David Thulstrup. "A space true to place and yet not anchored in a specific culture."

This project has been longlisted in the restaurant and bar interior category of Dezeen Awards 2023.
