After a gentle journey across Europe, this exclusive pop-up restaurant has arrived in London in time for the Games’ celebrations.

This shiny, angular structure looking down on London’s Southbank was designed by Italian studio Park Associati, in collaboration with Electrolux, to offer an unique dining experience to an exclusive few.

Aside from its anomalous shape, the thing that makes ‘The Cube’ so intriguing is its nomadic quality. After debuting on the Brussels skyline in April 2011, the restaurant meandered its way to Milan’s Piazza del Duomo and finally on to the UK’s capital where it will reside on the roof of the Royal Festival Hall throughout the Games’ celebrations.

In contrast to its surrounds, The Cube is bright, contemporary, almost Scandinavian in feel. A wrapped aluminium structure with hexagonal laser cut detailing and vast glass walls encloses a glossy interior space, where 18 guests at a time are dined around a rollaway table.

A terraced area and open kitchen creates an ‘at home’ feel and exposes guests to the restaurant’s hand-picked chefs - Sat Bains, Claude Bosi and Daniel Clifford and winners of ‘Ramsay’s Best Restaurant, Jonray and Peter Sanchez and Tom Kitchin.
