Since opening in 2008 J Sheekey Atlantic bar has been a regular haven for seafood lovers in the heart of the West End, providing the perfect place for pre and post-theatre dining both indoors and outdoors (when the English weather permits of course!). The iconic and ever impressive restaurant has recently collaborated with renowned designer Erdem to create an exclusive Fruits de Mer stand for the popular Fruits der Mer platter that is an absolute masterpiece of creativity…
Established in London in 2005, Erdem has come to be synonymous with versatile yet powerful fashion and is now featured in over 170 retailers worldwide. After numerous successful collaborations Erdem has now transformed J Sheekey Atlantic Bar’s Plateu de Fruits der Mer into a theatrical dish with the designers trademark fantastical design aesthetic.
Drawing influence from jewellery and patterns that feature in Erdem’s famous collections, the silver plated platter features delicate engravings of koi fish, drawn from above as though swimming underwater. Running along the edge of the plate are miniature koi figures, alternating with delicate flowers, a signature found in many of Erdem’s designs.
‘I am thrilled to be collaborating with J Sheekey Atlantic Bar. The restaurant has always been one of my favourites in London – it is so iconic, it‘s an institution. I created the plateau de Fruits de Mer combining elements of my world and J Sheekey’s iconic plateau. It is inspired by traditional Japanese illustrations of the Koi fish which has always held a certain beauty to me; Japan has been a place of great inspiration for my work over the years.’ – Erdem Moralioglu
