Selfridges’ Brasserie of Light features a 24-ft-tall flying horse by Damien Hirst

Selfridges’ new restaurant Brasserie of Light stays true to its moniker: it is illuminated by glowing orbs and crowned by a 24-ft high flying horse by Damien Hirst.

The crystal-encrusted sculpture of Pegasus soars above the dining hall of the London restaurant – Selfridges’ first after-hours dining destination – with its colossal 30-ft-wings outstretched.

Martin Brudnizki was tapped to create the brasserie’s interiors, which play with the idea of light to dazzling effect. He’s used mirrors to exaggerate volume inside the Art Deco space and to add spectacle.

Electric blue banquettes and mustard dining chairs inject a burst of colour into the double-height dining ball, while a large central bar anchors the space.

The kitchen is helmed by chef Emanuel Machado, with dishes including hand-dived scallops with red peppers, spaghettini with lobster and the eponymous Pegasus pie with yuzu coconut cloud.
