Design Champion: Tom Dixon x Assaf Granit


Designer Tom Dixon pairs up with chef Assaf Granit for a deliciously aesthetic collaboration.

A food and design playground offering Middle Eastern-inspired cuisine

Located opposite the recently regenerated Coal Yard Drops in King’s Cross, Coal Office is the brain-child of British designer Tom Dixon and acclaimed chef Assaf Granit.


The restaurant functions as a laboratory to test out ideas in comfort, dining, and luminosity in interior design. Every detail is well considered and comes together to form this cool space-age environment, all while omitting the sterility that I think this design style can suffer from.


“A complete collaboration between design and cooking; this is an active and engaged experience beyond just eating…Each guest to Coal Office is witness to an entirely different experience – seeing it from their own unique angle or vista”

So, if any of you are reading this are in the area- I’d recommend the josperised aubergine, and the plate it comes on.


Bon appétit.
