Our team are celebrating an outstanding stream of recent award wins, demonstrating the unrivalled results we deliver each and every time for our clients.

The design for Studio Frantzen, the immersive restaurant at the top of Harrods, London’s most iconic department store, has taken home three award wins; the WIN Awards, the Restaurant & Bar Design Awards, and the LIT Design Awards.

The restaurant is an amphitheatre of Nordic energy – reflecting the eclectic Scandi/Asian menu – and sprawls impressively through a double-height atrium to the roof terrace. Unique custom lighting and the use of precise optics, glare control and meticulous dimming, provide further comfort for guests while subtly highlighting the highly curated art, interior design and food.

Awarded Silver in the Lighting Design category of the WIN Awards, the lighting design echoes the restaurant’s luxurious setting and stellar reputation. Soon to be in its 14th year, the WIN Awards recognises outstanding works of innovative, visionary and imaginative interior design worldwide.

Studio Frantzen also took home the ‘In Another Space’ award at the renowned Restaurant & Bar Design Awards with interior designer Joyn Studios. Now in its 15th year, this is the most important and influential design competition for food and beverage spaces worldwide, recognising the world's most creative spaces. Our Creative Director, Graham Rollins, had the honour of attending the awards ceremony alongside the Joyn Studio team.

The third honour received by Studio Frantzen is a prestigious LIT Lighting Design Award, in the Bar and Restaurant Lighting Design category. Guest experience and dramatic focus were prerequisites to the design, and this ambition went hand in hand with reducing wattage for sustainability. The LIT Awards celebrates the exceptional work of talented lighting product designers, recognising achievements in lighting products, architectural lighting designs and entertainment lighting.

We are thrilled that another of our lighting design projects, The Dorchester, received an honourable mention in the LIT Design awards. Having stood proud on London’s famous Park Lane since 1931, The Dorchester is an iconic hotel ubiquitous with luxury. LDI was commissioned to design lighting schemes for renovations to The Promenade, Artist Bar, patisserie and florist shop, as well as external areas including the façade, forecourt, garden and canopy.

We are extremely proud to also have received an incredible recognition as a studio – LDI was named in the Top 100 Designers of the World by the Luxury Lifestyle Awards. The Luxury Lifestyle Awards is a global award promoting the best luxury services all over the world, celebrating the leaders in the sector.

With a high level of competition and significant number of entries from all over the world, the LDI team is thrilled to have our work highlighted through these prestigious awards. These recognitions prove that our designs stand apart from the crowd and that we always provide premium results for our clients.
