As part of a new development built in the shadow of Tower 42, the former 1960s NatWest Tower, Russell Sage Studio was tasked with creating and open, fresh and fun space with an upmarket sports lounge-feel to appeal to a city crowd for both lunch and after work. Designed inside what was a simple glass box, the studio was able to add personality and quality with leather banquet seating, industrial-feel lighting, the warmth of exposed copper piping along the bar area, as well as a shelving wall full of curios such as geology stones and taxidermy.
