From the humble medieval trencher to the sophisticated 18th century reworking by the notorious Earl, through to the worker’s ploughman’s lunch or the cricketer’s cucumber variety, the sandwich is deeply embedded in the British soul. It is only fitting that it should find its luxurious incarnation in Harrods, within a suitably palatial interior designed by Design Research Studio, the interior arm of Tom Dixon.
The 152 m2 space takes inspiration from classical London club interiors using hues such as deep green, dark blue and rich burgundy. The brand new sandwich bar has been refashioned as an unusually chic and comfortable bolthole to complement the acres of astonishing retail within the world renowned department store.
Tom Dixon Sandwich is furnished with the latest innovations in brass lighting and deeply upholstered club chairs, marble clad tables and pierced metal screens, all from the Tom Dixon collection and previously unseen.
The result is a gastronomic oasis literally sandwiched between the two Tom Dixon furniture concessions on the third floor. It is a perfect place to pop in for the lunch break or business meeting and it is known for its delicious Soft boiled Clarence court duck egg with Black Combe ham soldiers, Goat’s cheese, English pear and candied walnuts on ciabatta or Brown shrimp mayonnaise, fried capers and fresh lemon on granary loaf. It is officially our new favourite place to hangout, plus it is in the heart of the shopping heaven!
