The German Gymnasium by Into Lighting, Conran + Partners

March 2016

Lighting Designers Into Lighting were appointed by D&D London to work alongside Conran + Partners to provide specialist art lighting on The German Gymnasium near London’s Kings Cross, a magnificent flagship restaurant project.

Into Lighting specified TM’s high CRI TM Picture Lights for the large-scale paintings within the space. The picture lights were specially finished in brushed aluminium to match with the design features of the restaurant.

Originally built between 1864 and 1865, designed by Edward Gruning, the building was the first purpose-built gym in England, commissioned by the German Gymnastics Society.  The Grade II listed building has undergone extensive conservation and interior design work to restore it to former glory.  The restaurant serves Mittel-European inspired dishes all day long, across two vast floors and out on its heated terraces.
