Not your Nikkei Average

Recent events might have rather caught up with it, but it seems bookings are finally now being taken at the new The Ivy Asia restaurant in Jean Nouvel’s New Change opposite St Paul’s Cathedral – with, it seems, window views that are markedly more public than its more private and demure celebrity relative in Soho. The venue offers flexible dining, so Style installed an artfully decorated, semi-automatic Dorma Hüppe Variflex moveable wall to allow a private room for up to 35 guests to be quickly set up. It offers a 38dB Rw acoustic integrity too, so other diners don’t have to hear drunken stockbrokers bragging about their latest deal.
