Ideal Glass and Glazing were contracted to provide and fit handmade custom glass to Fortnum and Mason as part of a restaurant refurbishment project.
45 Jermyn Street is a luxury restaurant in in the heart of St. James’s Market in London, which is home to fine wine merchants, tailors and cigar retailers.
We created a range of clear spectrum hammered glass privacy screens to separate each seating booth at this high-class London restaurant.
Old School Glamour Meets Contemporary London
The video shows Christian hand-silvering the glass panels that were used in the restaurant.
Some panels were used as clear hammered glass for the booth privacy screens and others were made into stylish silvered glass panels.
Bespoke Glass Installation London
Our installations team visited the restaurant to take measurements for the panels and when they got back to base they got to work cutting them to size. Some panels were used as clear hammered glass and others were made into stylish silvered glass depending on where the panels were placed in the restaurant.
The mirror glass was be toughened as part of the silvering process, which is something that cannot be achieved with standard mirrors. Our pre-installation video shows how we turned them into the finished silvered panels you see in this luxury restaurant today.
Hand Silvered Glass
We start with a piece of glass and any cutouts and toughening are carried out by a glass processor. Once the glass is thoroughly cleaned, we mix up a silvering solution that is poured evenly onto clear glass. We treat the glass with a protective finish to prolong the life of the silvered glass panels.
Hand Hammered Glass
We take a piece of non-transparent rolled glass and emboss it on one side so it resembles beaten metal. This type of glass is great for creating a stunning and unusual finish to glass panels that were used throughout the restaurant.
