Harrods Chocolate Hall
Architect: Woods Hardwick
Interior Design: David Collins Studio
In May 2021, Harrods celebrated 150 years of chocolate with the reopening of the renovated Chocolate Hall. The Chocolate Hall designed by David Collins Studio is the forth and final of the stores world famous Edwardian food halls and was the fourth collaboration between Lighting Design International and David Collins Studio for the food halls at Harrods.
The Chocolate Hall has its own character governed by the halls historic architecture and the product being sold, but it is part of the same overall vision from David Collins Studio, working together with the previous halls to deliver its own glamorous role in the Harrods food revolution.
The lighting was envisaged as being brighter than the previous food hall projects, and brighter than the previous Chocolate Hall, allowing the visitor to appreciate the impressive architecture of the space while still providing higher illumination and contrast to the product on sale in the ambient shelving and refrigerators.
